    I got a call today asking me to call my brother, Tony in Illinios who I haven't stayed in close contact with for various reasons. He has been clean/sober now for 5 months which is great news.

    But, today his girlfriend lost their baby 8 months into the pregnancy due to a detached placenta. The mother is recovering in ICU but looking good so that is a relief.

    On top of that he has a daughter down in Texas that was recently removed from her mothers custody after she got into heavy drugs and has refused help. Due to his past he cannot legally leave the state of Illinois to pickup his daughter in Texas and they will not allow my father (her grandfather) to pick her up and bring her back which he is ready and willing to do (and has had temporary custody of her before).

    Right now more than ever my brother needs strength from anywhere it is available. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers if you have the chance And if anyone in the state of Texas is reading this can you slap some common sense back into your child case workers? :doah:

    The State of Texas has some "jacked up rules" as far as children go. My friend is going through hell trying to get custody of his child.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family and your brothers family.

    What part of the State is she located in? (If that is to personal, you don't have to answer.)

    I'm not sure what part of Texas... its a big state and her mother went off the map for quite some time before this.
