Clothing needed

This weekend my grandsons needed to be removed from their father's care. He is refusing to send their clothes and toys along or any of their records such as immunization, ss cards, birth certificates, and so on. Their mom got copies of the birth certificates but now needs to replace their clothes. Even their shoes--they came away in cowboy boots which are hard on their toes and not practical.

I don't know shoe sizes; I imagine she'll buy shoes. But I'm wondering if anyone knows of a source of hand-me-down clothing for boys aged 6 and 8. The 8 year old is tall and thin. He said his jeans were a size 12. They've always been a size or more bigger than what it says for their age. If mom goes shopping for a few things I'll try to get more exact size info. They've grown since they were with her last October.

I hope this counts against him in the custody lawsuit. I can't believe how petty it is. "That stuff is mine because I bought it." What a douche.

We can hit goodwill and salvation army stores when Dave gets paid and pick up a few things. Their mom is going to also look into thrift shops and resources where she lives. I gave them two backpacks before they left.

How many ways can you devalue your children?
