No one knows how [far away land] found out about the case here.
But they did. And now they want our county to take jurisdiction of this new case. Which may not be a case as the child may still be with the mother.
So that’s clear as mud.
From what I understand, our county is saying something along the lines of “Our case is closed. New baby. New baby daddy. Baby in your state = your problem.” Which means they don’t want to take the case.
I get it. Budget. Lots of babies here. BUT I have the sibling. And I have a crib and a car seat and bottles and arms and kisses and, and, and…
So… There’s a hearing later. For what, I have no idea. I may know something next week. By Wednesday at the latest. They think.
In the mean time, I’m going to wear tracks in my floor pacing in prayer for this baby girl. For bureaucratic benevolence. For my own heart.
I’m gonna pray, pray, pray.
