Gotta love that, dogs are better parents than humans. There was a case not so long ago, about a dog staying with a two year old that wandered off, kept the child warm all night, outside. Apparently the Mother was drunk, not watching her child. They had a search, and found the dog and child together.

Hope that little girl will have a good life. What is with people? If you don't want to take care of a child, give it up to another family.

Genie is a famous case of abuse and neglect, and has been studied quite extensively, in regards to how children cannot learn basic language or skills after a certian age, because of severe neglect. The nueral pathways never had a chance to develop, so a child is stuck in as a pervasive developmental disorder for life. She has the capacity to learn, but after that critical time frame of not getting stimuli, she could never learn even basic skills or communication.

I have seen many children of drug addicts, who have the same type of developmental issues. One little girl, age 5, ate food with her hands, off the floor. She had never used a plate, spoon, or fork. She had been eating dog food off the floor.

For Genie it was waaaaaay too late. This little girl may yet pick up some skills.

this is one of the most amazing things i have ever read. i cannot believe that the court waived the punishment for this woman. your housecleaning "got away from" you? really? you can manage to keep a cigarette in your mouth at all times, but you can't manage to pick up after yourself? you don't notice your child has lice? that she can't speak?

god bless the family that adopted this child. that dream that the father had....the hands coming through the roof holding dani...that made me cry. there are still good people in the world.
