Should I take my 4 month old baby to jail to visit his father?

I am torn because he landed himself in jail, and I don't think he deserves to see him. He left myself and his son when he was just 2 months old, b/c of a coke habit. I tried to help him, and obviously it didn't work. I want to protect my son from getting hurt by him. He says he is going to ask to go to rehab, and get his life together so I think what I should do is wait, and see if that actually happens. If and when he has completed treatment then he can come visit his son. This is such a confusing situation.

You are responsible to ALLOW the father to have a relationship with his son. You are not responsible to MAKE IT HAPPEN. He landed himself in jail, and there is no reason a baby should go to a jail. You should make sure that you have the custody ducks in a row before he gets out. As for the father... He needs to sort out his life.

Thank you. I am going to court in January for full legal & physical custody. Yes he does need a lot of help, and I hope one day he wakes up.
