But That's Their Baby!

L had a nice phone conversation with Princess's caseworker. When transportation brought her bio mom to the hospital to visit, they gave them a hard time giving her clearance to visit. Here's a summary of the conversation between the caseworker and several hospital staff:

Staff: She is not on the visitor's list and transportation worker does not have a state badge. How do I know they are not trying to steal the baby?

CW: I'm her caseworker, that's her bio mom. It's ok for her to have supervised visits.

Staff: That's not her baby! That's L & L's baby! These are NOT the people who come to visit her all the time and call all the time. L & L are the ONLY people on the list allowed to visit her.

CW: Yes, she will probably be L & L's baby one day but not she's in state care. Who do you think put them on the list to visit?


Anyway, I loved the way the hospital said it was our baby even though I know she's not mine, she is mine until the judge says otherwise. The hospital staff seems pissed at mom for what she put Princess through.

Princess's caseworker almost had to call me to call the hospital to let bio mom in! Well, at least I know the hospital is protecting her.

Oh yeah, she also had a note from her supervisor saying the hospital was ready to release Princess and ready for one of us to room in with her. That's news to me considering she is not bottle feeding yet and doesn't have a g-tube.

    That's great that the hospital actually cares about the little girl. It's good also that bio mom got to see that. Maybe it will drive into her head that she actually did something bad to Princess and that she should change. It's also good for bio mom to see that she doesn't automatically gets what she wants just because she gave birth, so many of them take these things for granted.
