The typical dynamic is this: the girl often doesn't even know where babies come from, and tries to hide her pregnancy from herself first and her family second. It does not occur to her that she has another person to support; she is primarily afarid people will not like her if they know, so she just keeps it a secret. She has NO coping skills and her family is not supportive in any way when she needs them; it would not even occur to her to go to them for help even if she knows she is expecting. She is such a child herself that it doesn't even cross her mind to find someone else who might help, or to do something concrete to help the babies when they are born. That's why she hid them in the laundry basket, like a kid hiding her broccoli under the mashed potatoes. She doesn't think past this instant, not understanding that taking a human life is not something you can just sweep under a rug. She thinks if she says she's sorry, everyone should just forgive her.

I mean, doesn't it say volumes that she can be pregnant -- with TWINS -- and nobody notices?

So sad especially when there are so many couples that struggle with fertility. Those babies could've been adopted.

Lindsey Lowe cheated on her fiancé, Jonathan Brooks, and the babies she killed didn't belong to him.
