No, this isn't a riddle, It's what I have to deal with...

Raise your hand if you know the answer.
I got a phone call informing me baby weepy has a sibling. (I had been hoping she was lieing about being pregnant, but I guess not) and would I be able to take the baby if they could not find a suitable relative? (Hello, that's why I have baby weepy) I told them yes, I would. The only relative was gma in another state who was trying to get baby weepy through ISPC* but she had been working on it for 5 months and had gotten no where yet. Had only visited one time. They said, "OK, you'll be hearing from us."
Then I get a call from Gma saying a SW had called her and asked if she could come take this new baby from the hospital, because she tested + for drugs. The SW said come tomorrow, sign papers and take the baby back to the other state.
NOW, I ask YOU. Am I Crazy to think, WHAT is going on? If she is good enough to take this newborn (which she said she'd never do because of her age) right from the hospital in this state & same county & take back to another state, WHY? has baby weepy been in care for 5 months? Why are things not good enough for her to take Baby Weepy? I think it's whatever is convenient for them at the time. This has my brain (or what's left of it) reeling.
I don't get it. Am I missing something. It's not even that CPS* wasn't involved with the new one, because they are. As soon as she tested pos. a SW was called and a case opened.
Just when you think you've seen it all.

I've no answers to your non-riddle, just a comment: you, my dear, are a hero for doing what you do for those kids. Period.

Carry on with your musings . . .

Looks like if she could drive to pick up the new baby that she could swing by and get babyweepy as well. Doesn't she want them both? Think she'll keep crossing state lines to get each kid biomom pops out? That was probably too mean, but I'm irritated right along with you. Senseless!

Here's a plan: Go to the hospital with Baby Weepy. When she isn't looking, put him in her car. Tell the worker that you thought she should have them both.

I know there must be moments when you look around and think, "Is it me? Am I the only one who thinks this is absolutely crazy?" The answer is NO - this is one seriously screwed up mess. This woman hasn't proven fit to take custody of Baby Weepy but she has an invitation to breeze into town and take a NEWBORN to ANOTHER STATE? They wouldn't put this in a movie because it's so implausible that no one would believe it.
