Interesting conversation about Child Custody Thursday afternoon with Attorney Joel Harbinson on the Radio. I must say, I see a lot of child swaps every Sunday at the Shopping Center parking lot in Bethlehem. The only time I ever got swapped was when I jumped on a School Bus. I’m so blessed to have been raised in a household with both my biological parents. As I’ve stated many times, any shortcomings I have is no reflection on my parents. They weren’t perfect but they did it right !
