drug dependant baby, advice needed

(571 Posts)

MNHQ have commented on this thread.

I've been asked to foster a baby expected to be suffering drug withdrawal when it is born next week.

It is years since I've cared for one of these and any advice would be most gratefully received.

Only just read this & did not expect this ending!
I have never cried due to a thread before, but I am lying here sobbing my eyes out! I lost my mum last year to cancer which also spread, it is awful!
EMIN did such an amazing job & has brought so much love to so many children who wouldn't have had the chance to get over their terrible start without her.

EMIN, I am in awe of you & your limitless love, you really were an absolutely wonderful person.

This is the second time I read this thread, and it blew me away and has left me sobbing just the same.

You were a wonderful wonderful woman Earthmother. You gave so much love. I hope you are looking down and smiling on the many lives you changed.

Fuck, I was on classics looking for a laugh. Spotted this and remembered it from the first time around - I knew it'd be a heart warmer.

Well now I'm sat here sobbing at the shittiness of life.

RIP EMIN, you beautiful thing you.

Remember it well- no less heartbreaking yet uplifting all this time later. God rest you EMIN xxx

Amazing thread. Absolutely amazing.

What a woman. What a family. I know it's been a few years since EMIN passed but the grief doesn't leave, you just learn to live with it and I've no doubt this is the case for them.

I'm very glad that this thread is in classics and is serving to keep EMIN's memory alive. And I really hope her family continue to be comforted by this.
