Yes, IABU - this is not what AIBU is for. But I think the OP would benefit from some more support.

You want the OP to get support, so you post a link in the forum with the highest number of assholes? confused

I'm not a lawyer, but best of luck to her. I hope she gets her baby back.

No she is posting to try and help this poster who has posted in perhaps not high traffic area of the site where as this is...to help a mother which is what this site is suppposed to be about.

I think it's quite clear why OP posted the link here, Princess. hmm

Has anyone sent a pm to
Spero?

AIBU can be an incredibly supportive forum - that's been shown repeatedly

I hate this blanket dismissal of us all as arseholes - the arseholes share the space with nice people grin

Hope someone can help...

Fingers crossed someone has some good advice.

Have already been on thread and advised several times smile

Am a family lawyer by the way

Yes, I know why she posted here. I'm pointing out that this may not be the best place to put a sensitive link, especially since there have been threads here where people have attacked a poster who started a thread about having a miscarriage.

I think it's a bit disingenuous to pretend that -certain- people in this forum wouldn't decide to troll in a thread where they could easily hurt an already vulnerable OP.

I'm just not sure how wise it is to open up the flood gates and let everything in. That's all.

I'm not a family lawyer but I thought in the UK unless Social Services have a court order (which they will have if there are exceptional risk factors) it is impossible to relinquish all responsibility at birth as OP claims to have done.

See what your saying Princess. Maybe MNHQ could delete it after 24hrs

MonserratCaballe Tue 17-Jun-14 18:53:21

We have explored what she did at birth on the thread. She has not relinquished responsibility. She simply asked ss to accommodate her son after he was born, in legal terms

I appreciate what princess is saying, and think that maybe it's best to get this thread moved to 30 days or possibly deleted. The original op might not want this is such a high traffic area...

On the other hand I know where spinach fly is coming from, it's awful being on such an emotive thread and feeling so helpless, best intentions I'm sure smile
