Update on Baby Ben

The Irish Times this morning are running a story by Ronan McMcGreevy into the baby Ben story I ran with on Friday.

It appears that things are looking hopeful from the stance of Ireland's
Health Service Executive (HSE). The baby's father Mark McDougall is saying:

"We are expecting some good news by then. It looks like the Irish HSE are very keen to try everything they can for the most positive outcome, which they agree is to have us all together as a family. The Waterford HSE are so much more understanding than the UK social services."

And is comparing it to George Orwell's 1984.

"Not intelligent enough to raise a child, what next? Not middle class enough? Too old to raise a child etc etc."

I'll keep you posted of developments, thanks to everyone who has read this and joined the Facebook Group that has been going to show support.

Personally I Think The Uk's View On This Is Disgraceful! I Mean Kerry Is Capable Of Looking After Herself And A Child Clearly She Will Need Some Help But She Is A Loving Careing Person The Fact That She Has Mild Difficulties Is Nothing To Do With It, I Think It's The History Of The Family And Kerry Is Being Frowned Upon Because Of This! It's Ridiculous How Drug Addicts And Alcoholics Can Bring Children In This World And Be Eligible To Get Married! Typical! I Feel Strongly On This And Hope That The Scottish Laws Can Seriously Think Whether They Are Doing More Good Than Wrong! It's Cruel.
