The community steps in to ensure the babys safety. It is not about whether or not the mother loves her baby. It is all about mothering skills and the childs need to be safe. Hootahs Baby is a tool to be used to help children of court-ordered relinquishment and/or state custody to understand the complex issues that have led to their current life situation. Helps are included for the adult who reads this book with these children to be able to assist them to open windows of communication that will help them understand basic truths: they are not at fault- the courts are not the bad guys- and their mothers do, in fact, love them. They simply cannot parent any child at that point in their lives.
