Two Mothers

The "Judgment of Solomon" is the Bible story of two mothers who came before King Solomon to resolve a quarrel about which was the true mother of the baby. The king in his wisdom ordered that the surviving baby be cut in two and divided between the two mothers.

The lying woman would rather have the child divided in two by the king's sword so that the real mother could not have her baby. But the real mother showed compassion and asked the king to spare the child and give her baby to the lying woman. This was a strategy used to determine the truth.

In the case of Trenton Duckett, two mothers wanted him. Carla Massero and Melinda Duckett. Like the Bible account of the two mothers, Carla Massero and Josh Duckett would rather have Trenton kept in a foster home with strangers, rather than allow Trenton to live with his loving great grandparents, just so Melinda could not have Trenton.

Here is Bill Eubank's letter of appeal for compassion:
