He took the baby

It's a long, drawn out story, but essentially my sister's ex suddenly decided tonight that he wanted the baby and came and took her and there wasn't a damn thing we could do about it since my sister is in the hospital. She thought she was going to get to come home on Sunday, but once she finds out about this she's probably going to flip and they may keep her longer. Basically, his family talked him into it and started texting/calling my mom saying they'll file kidnapping charges if we take her anywhere before they get there and that he has full custody and it'll stay that way until she's 18. He told his family that my sister kicked the baby and tried to beat the crap out of the boyfriend. Neither of those things happened.

If the sheriff's department hadn't been there (we called them) someone or more than one would have ended up hospitalized and/or in jail tonight. My mom is a complete mess. I had to hand the baby over and I wanted to kick him in the nuts. My stepdad is ready to go to jail after he has his piece of him.

And guess who has to pick up the pieces and hold it all together for everyone.

I'm calling to have them check on her tomorrow bc we weren't home and didn't send much with her. He's violent, so we're worried he'll hurt her if she cries too much. He's said he's worried about that too. Then we have to find a lawyer so there's a custody agreement in place. I don't care what his family thinks- that baby is far better off with us than with him.

Unfortunately, they just had to leave for a doctor's appointment. My sister is picking up the dad on the way so he can go too. It's about an hour and a half away. Hopefully they can be civil to each other. I really hope my sister realizes how awful of a person he is and that he's not going to change.

She's also meeting the aunt who I talked to on the phone to confront her about what she said and ask what exactly the dad told her. She wants to set the record straight about what happened. The aunt told me that he said my sister kicked the baby in the head and threatened to beat the crap out of him. The truth is that he was holding my sister down, she was trying to get loose, and he said to her that if she kicked the baby, he was going to beat the crap (not his word) out of her. She quit struggling and bit him instead.

I am afraid he's going to hurt my sister. I know he's the baby's father, but I really wish he'd just disappear.
