    Dear LORD… I’m so happy to know that the baby wasn’t harmed! What was the father’s reason for taking the baby as a hostage in the first place? People do crazy thing’s when they can’t have the person they want to be with. You CAN’T force someone to be with you if you’re being abusive or acting and doing thing’s. Just learn to let it go because you’re obviously NOT meant to be!
