As I posted earlier my DGD and the baby are going to visit their biodad, his mom, aunt and uncle and the cousins.

Kathy, I would feel alot better if E had her return ticket before she left. You don't need the hassle of trying to get her back especially w/the baby. These people don't sound very reliable or trustworthy. Also E doesn't need any problems w/biodad if she can't get back in a timely manner. How long will she be gone for? personally I'd feel better if she scraped the whole trip. She also needs to provide you w/a phone number & address of all of them she'll be visiting. If anything goes wrong its your aggravation & you don't need that, having addresses & phone numbers is common courtesy, what if she need to speak w/her for something important that comes up?


Also round trip is cheaper then 1 way so I'd be telling E to speak to her aunt about why only one way, also she needs a definite comeback date.

Kathy will they have a car seat on the other end? is E taking a stroller, O'Hare is the worst, I also hated changing planes in that airport, the connecting flight could be a 30 minute walk around to the other side. They will store a stroller up front & she might want it to walk thru the airport I also did.


I always told dh to not get a connecting flight & if he had to not thru O'Hare.


Give E Colleens phone number just in case.

I used to live in Illinois, and have had to go out of O'Hara a lot. It is considered a city all by it's self. I'm just saying, I agree with you about the bad feeling. And, somewhere I would put some kind of rules down. There is a baby to think about. And, E is a first time mom. You better believe that I would have SOMEBODIES address, phone number, and their relatives address & phone numbers. If they want to get an attitude tough. But, if an emergency comes up I better know how to get hold of my grand daughter and her baby. And, I would be calling those numbers before she left to make sure they were all good numbers. As far as the ticket goes. Why can't she trade it in for one like you want? It is in her name isn't it? Then she wouldn't have to go through all those hoops. I mean if it costs the same I would do it. And, if they said they would pay for the tickets, let them. But, I would make sure they had one for her to come home before she even went out there. I just am not the trusting kind when someone does all this on the last second. It just doesn't feel right. I know your trying to let E have her freedom. But, maybe you should talk to the counselor, and let her see your side of this. Maybe she could talk E into making sure some of these things are taken care of before she and the baby to there. If they want this so bad. Then they should take full responsibility for it. But, then this is just me. And, I am hard headed, stubborn, and over protective. And, not in your shoes. So, I will shut up, and just pray for this to work out great for all of you. But, at least give her Colleen's number, please? I love you sis very much. And, which friend is she on FB? I want to make sure I don't add her as one on my friends list. LOL

We might not have started talking about airports but as you do know, our threads never seem to end on the same subject that they began.


Your post makes me wonder - are you still working that wild traveling schedule that you had a while back.
