That's true Cliffie, but who's to step in?,...Where were her family?.... Who's gonna make that judgement call on someone they don't really know?...It really was just a tragic mistake...the fact that she was having sex with a boyfriend when the children died is is not really worthy of pondering, as it is pure sensationalism at it's best, and detracts from the fact that this young mothers "mistake" will haunt her for the rest of her life., the same as it will haunt other people who've sadly made this same "mistake", as is evidenced by the links above...I agree though, completely ,that people should be taken to task waaaay more, but I think that it's not happening because people are afraid to get involved...repercussions and all....

The newspapers are very unlikely to tell us anything useful about her support system. But most children have aunts, uncles, grandparents, family friends who might step in. Of course they would have to know something was wrong in the first place. And maybe she is normally a great mom nobody would worry about in the least. It's hard to know when she's being painted to look like a nympho freakazoid.

You're absolutely right Cliffie...but sadly..that seems to be what attracts people, sensationalism at it's best...makes for better ratings I guess.
