That a court after listening to all of the evidence that she literally takes the child from Florida. Takes -- -- there is found hiding in a closet and Arkansas. The child -- -- taken into Foster care that somehow the judges gonna say okay fine here ago you now have custody that's very hard to believe it's more likely. That she has some sort of temporary. Custody -- she's allowed for example to bring the child back to Florida something like that we'll have to see when it comes to children. It's not a question of how did the parents behave did what they do what's right or wrong. The only question is what's in the best interest of that child.

That the mother has custody so this is a complicated case it seems that it -- sort of no winners here so to speak. But the fact that that child was taken into Foster care. And right -- in and of itself is a long so many have pain that her mother has issues as well so. Yet look and that's it she says although all others around the mother have been yes they have all right Dan we'll keep an eye on it -- -- very much.
