I have just had a phone call from a very elderly relation stating that her grand-child has given birth to her second child ( she already has 3 year old) and that social services have tested the new mum for drug use and found her clear, but are refusing to let her take the week old babe home, but have told the girl that she has to leave the hospital, she is refusing to leave with out her babe, so they are threatening to call the police.
Where would be the best place for this person to get rapid speedy advice? I know the protection of children is paramount in all cases.
The thing that sent the girl into a downward spiral of drugs was that she and her brother & sisters were sexually abused by a family 'friend' then she was later raped whilst in hospital!
The elderly relation is concerned that it may be a backward step into drugs with all this latest trouble.
it's all so pitiful.
