We will today seek to speak to a Family Lawyer or make an appointment for early next week. We approached Social Services for a DNA test for my son, but they just kept saying 'there is no baby'. The Police came to our house looking for the mother, and we directed them to her parents home. They came back to our home with info from the maternal grandmother stating 'there is no baby' and the police believed them. The mother's family are former Irish travellers. I am thinking now that she may have gone to Ireland to give birth as she disappeared two weeks before the baby was due. Since then she has phoned my son (from another phone) to confirm there is a baby. We can't call her as she has blocked all our nos. She rings my son to taunt him about the baby and rings off. As a result we are left with the pain of not knowing where the baby is, or confirmation that there is a baby. When she lived with us at 38 weeks gestation she was proud of her small 'bump' and my son would feel her stomach and feel the baby kicking. She also went with her for scans and she showed us baby pictures in the womb. Surely she could not have made all this up? She also said she would register the baby in my son's name, but, of course, by now the baby would have been registered in her name.
We are beside ourselves with worry and confusion.
