You know, when dealing with irrational "mothers," you MUST keep records of all your communications. Communicate only through email. Record your telephone conversations. Save the text messages. Don't get involved in a face-to-face conversation, as it will most likely turn into an ugly argument. These are the precautions we take, and what has helped cover our behinds for the past 7 years.

As for the police reports... don't worry too much. My husband and I have had a handful filed against us by our son's biological mom. Kidnapping reports (for being late returning him from a visit, despite having called and left messages on her house and cell phones) and verbal abuse reports. She even went to court trying to get a restraining order! The judge laughed at her because she had no valid reason to make such a request.

I know it's hard. I know it's frustrating. And I know that it's extrememly scary. But hang in there and do what is best for your child.

All the best!
