I just met a girl, 25 years old that has a six month old baby and has nothing for him. Her wonderful ex-husband sold all of the children's clothes and furniture while she was at work and left the two babies home with the six year old. When she got home, they were just sitting on the floor waiting for her. I almost cried while she was telling me about it. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone in Arizona had a baby portable crib or a baby walker. I'm going to try and find some things for her. I know I can't afford new, things haven't been going so great for us, money wise, so I have to look for used. I've tried Craigs list and left messages on some of the posts. Now, I just have to wait and see. She has a six year old, a three year old and the six month old baby. They're not doing Christmas this year and boy did that make me feel badly. She's a very nice girl. :) TRying so hard and not really getting anywhere. We had a baby car seat, so she took that and we had some baby blankets, so she took them. Boy, you think things are rough until you see someone like this. And what beats it all, is she is so upbeat. Just thrilled that she has her children and doesn't mind that they don't have anything right now. She knows things will work out. She has faith in life. I'm hoping that fate is good to her and her children. :)

Yes, when you hear stories like this, you have to count your blessings.

I wonder if there might be anything useful for her on freecycle.org -- it looks like they have some "branches" in Arizona. I don't really know anything about it except I think I remember snycock mentioning that she'd used it to pass on some things to other people, and I know it's free, and maybe somebody in your part of Arizona is offering something this woman and her kids could use?

And wow, yeah, I admire her attitude. I also have faith in it, for her and her kids.

Patt, there may be some resources for her, if she hasn't found them already. My sister works with such cases in Georgia.

I'll ask Glenda when I see her today.

I don't have anything that she can use for the children, but if you can take a donation - somehow I would love to contribute.

What about the woman? Besides the furniture, did he take her clothes too? And does she have other family members?

I feel confident if she is upbeat she is going to be fine though. The power of visualization with pull her out of this!

Oh no, I wasn't asking for money. Yes, the ass took all of her clothes too. She has a mother but she's on disability and doesn't have much to speak of.

Glenda should be here in a minute. So I'm glad you responded to remind me of this.

But I also realized that she could in fact have him arrested, tf he was taking care of the children while she was working. He could be charged with child endangerment.

He was arrested. Thankfully, she's divorced from him now. Drugs do crazy things to people.

Well, I just talked to Glenda. She said each state has an abuse 24 hour hotline, and that this would fall under that in which she could call for assistance.

I can get and give you the number if you want it. She could call this hotline and they can connect her to the one for Arizona.

My god, some people are horrible. Who the hell sells items that children will need to get their get-away stash? Good luck with your efforts to help this woman.

I know, I thought this guy has taken low to a new level. I'm in shock.

I don't get how anyone could do that their own kids!! I wish you all the best in your efforts to aid this woman and her family.
