Another Lucky Kid

During a child custody battle in Melbourne, Vic., Australia, an unnamed woman was ordered by the judge to stop nursing her son. That may sound outrageous, but it’s at the request of the boy: he’s six years old, and he complained his mother tried to get him to suckle when his parents visited with him for the first time in five years. The court awarded custody of the boy to his nanny, who has been caring for him for those five years, and the parents may be deported. (RC/Melbourne Herald-Sun) ...That’s one way to avoid an appeal of the ruling.
