I need help. I am uncomfortable letting an unstable woman (possible drug addict) hold my baby at church. I flat out told her "no" when she asked to hold him and got very upset at me, pointing out to onlookers that many people hold my baby and why not her? I left the situation, but she was upset and ranting for a long time. I know that she'll confront me next Sunday. What do I say? She told people that it was unchristian of me to discriminate (she is African American, and she's a recovering drug addict who comes from an abusive background). Honestly, whether she is African American doesn't matter. He is held by many African Americans at my church. The truth is, she is being singled out because I don't know or trust her. And, I honestly don't want my son to be too friendly with her because what if he learns to trust her and she goes "unstable" on him? What would you all do?
