Well, there has been a significant shift in answering this question. Hannah is absolutely beautiful, healthy, and was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday.
Someone at the hospital overheard a verbal exchange between my daughter and her husband and reported them to social services. My daughter was interviewed by a social worker on Monday, and determined that there is abuse occuring in the relationship. Nothing physical, but emotional and psychological abuse with her husband losing his temper more frequently of late; throwing and breaking things around the house and scaring my daughter. My daughter, finally shared some of this with her mother, and after the social worker interview agreed that it would be best for her to go home with her parents for the time being.
So, Tuesday I drove them all home. We’re all here now (there’s eight of us in our house right now). It’s baby central, with very excited aunts, grandparents, and a stream of family and friends coming over to visit.
Our daughter, Megan, is in need of prayer. She is very torn up about this decision to leave her husband. She is in fact, backing off her decision, and really displaying signs of being abused – meaning she’s not making rational decisions.
We continue to need prayer as we seek to get her husband, Anthony, the counseling he needs; Megan the fortitude to do what she needs to do, and what is best for Hannah; and for us wisdom in how to deal with this situation.
