DETROIT (WXYZ) - Little Serenity is looking good and as cute as ever after a harrowing evening when her father allegedly abandoned her at a Detroit bus stop.
Her great aunt Rachel Howell now has custody.
Howell says she has spoken with her niece Nicole, Serenity’s mom, about what happened.
"I am so confused about everything, I did talk to my niece briefly last night and her story is not even clear to me," Howell says.
Serenity’s father has apparently been in and out of the child’s life, but had been staying with Nicole for the last few days.
"Her story is she stepped out for a few hours and asked him to babysit," Howell says about what her niece told her.
Rachel says Nicole and the baby’s father are not being allowed to see the child for now.
While Rachel has a lot of questions for the parents, they might have to wait. She’s hearing the father has checked himself in to the hospital.
