if the police we're involved then I definatly think they will put in a referal to social services. She may get help, if not they will eventually just take the baby into care and adopt it out. The child will probably be put on the at risk register to be kept an eye on.
It was a horrible traumatic experience and I hope your ok
I'm studying to be a teacher. Things like these are eye openers: we expect all kids to perform the same and meet all the stupid standards that some adult sets for them when there are so many other basic needs that may not be covered. The worst part is that then we treat the child as if they were having problems on purpose (be it behavioral or a learning disability) but when you look at the background they come from, how can they not have issues?
It is really sad =(
It also makes you realize that we worry so much, sometimes, about being able to afford everything we think our baby will need. But our babies are so fortunate and they have so much already just by having loving parents.
I just hope that her doctor and MW are aware of her problems and that she is being monitored closely by social services because it clearly sounds like she probably isn't capable of looking after a baby
