Keeping you informed. Received a call from a social worker in Idaho, we are in Utah, wanting my son to call her. She needed a release of information form signed by him and a copy of the birth certificate naming him as the father. She suggested he take custody, (the state has custody for 30 days, they are trying to decide what to do after that) I think he agreed, but then the bombshell she said the doctors have determined that Eli will never improve from his now comatose state. I thought after he called me that I might have to have him admitted to the hospital, he was so distraught and upset. We didn't know all the facts since all the info we get is from her my space. I had suspicions but he apparantly was just waiting for him to come to eventually. He was so angry about her putting Eli in danger and then keeping him in the dark about his condition. He was feeling tremendous guilt at allowing her to leave with him, but they were not married when he was born and he did not have legal custody as he did the other two. In fact she tried to take the other two when she left too, that was hell for a few days, don't EVER think the police will help in that situation. They just said well you have to file a complaint of custodial interference and go through the courts. They would not help him get the kids although we showed them the papers saying he had sole physical custody. What a joke! If a man didn't return a child after visitation I bet they'd be all over him. Anyway, she finally brought them to me thank goodness. Then the day Eli was suffocated was the day she had planned to come pick up the other two and take them up there for a month. She made all these plans thinking he would go along, he said no they weren't going up there, so she was planning to get an attorney. They are only 2 and 3 way too young to go back and forth like that. I'm getting off subject, but it's so fortunate they weren't there also, and I'm trying to get him to see he has no guilt in this, he shouldn't feel guilty about what happened or the fact that he cannot handle Eli in his condition and work and take care of a 2 and 3 year old also. It's hard to know what to do what to think, I'm only a little over a year away from my pension I can't quit to care for him. How can we leave the little guy to the will of the state of Idaho?
