A co-worker of mine who lost the battle to gain custody of his son a few months ago as the mom was getting ready to move a few states away, is not at the hospital watching as his son is in critical condition. Apparently the new step dad beat him over an iccident of eating cheerios. Although drs have high hopes he will recover, things are still touch & go because of the bleeding in his brain. In this delicate situation, is there anything to say or do for the family?

Just be a listening ear and a voice of reasoning.  I work daily with families that have gone through similar situations and  with all the high emotions and blaming between the parents some just has to be the calming force.  Pray and do more praying its what will get him through.
