The court prefers to keep a child within the family if at all possible. However, the foremost consideration of the court is the child's welfare. It is not impossible for a non-family member to receive temporary custody of a child, but it can be a complicated and sometimes expensive endeavor.

Do the baptist church practice infant baptism?

If infant baptism is considered part of salvation then the baptist church does not do it. Some baptist churches will have an infant dedication that sets aside those that will assist in the christian training of the youth. This may include the laying on of hands, prayer of dedication and a re-dedication of those that are related to the infant. An infant is not considered a church member until the decision is made by the individual to accept Jesus as Savior and request membership.

If it can be proven that the father is a drug abuser, that would not bode favorably for him. However an accusation is just that. It does not constitute proof.

Should a 14-year-old take in a baby from a mother who is in jail?

Putting the ethical and moral issues aside, the reality is a minor cannot take custody of any person's child, regardless of the circumstances. Even an adult cannot legally take custody of a child without following the proper procedures. Who receives custody of an infant in such a situation is decided by a judge not the mother. It is preferable that said infant be placed with a family member who qualifies under DSS regulations. If that is not possible the infant will be made a ward of the state and placed in a foster home. I Don't think that they should!! How exactly would they be supporting the child that they have taken in and what would they do with the expense's of the child that the took in like the the daycare, diapers, milk and clothes, shoes and ther need that the baby would have.
