I gave away ALL of the baby items I had in December. I mean EVERYTHING, even the things that AJ hardly used and expensive furniture items also. Since I had given it to one of my DH's co-workers that had nothing for his baby that was about to be born, I felt really good about it cause I thought I was helping the baby. Well today while DH and I were out we spotted his friend and he told us that ACS took away the baby because when they tested the baby in the hospital she had drugs (marijuana) in her. Soooo all of the things that I gave away were in vain Now I have nothing for this bean because of me trying to be nice to a junkie (the guys girlfriend). I had no idea she was a bad mother, Oh and I forgot to mention she had 6 older kids that the State took away also. Now I have nothing for my baby and the things I gave away are probably in the dumpster.
That really sucks. But you know what though? You did a good deed out of the kindness of your heart. Hindsight is great, but it doesn't change your intentions at the time. Unfortunately you can't predict how things will go - you had no way of knowing what would happen, or that the baby's mama was such a loser.
OMG That sucks! But I agree that it is still nice that you were trying to be a good person and help those kids (even when apparently their mom COULDN'T!) I hope you can find some good stuff - maybe this one's a girl and then you have an excuse to get all girly stuff!
