    After spending an hour and a half today taking winter coats and groceries to a grandmother trying to raise six grandchildren, this is expecially hard to read. I don't even know what to say. I'm just sickened.

    Stories like this infuriate me. These are the same people who are so adamantly against abortion and adoption. Why is it that people who aren't fit to have animals are the ones that keep popping out kids?

    Either start using birth control or keep your legs closed!!!

    How can someone be so heartless?

    Kent has had more bizarre, cruel, and sick, child abuse/death cases reported in the news than any other city I can recall.

    This really makes me feel so ill. Why, oh why is it that people who appear to not want a child just don't give it up for adoption? My husband and I tried for years to have a child and finally applied for adoption and the waiting list at that time was 5-7 yrs.

    I just do not understand how someone can neglect and abuse a child.

    Really terrible. So this woman actually gave birth to 7 children- I wonder why she lost custody of the first four. (but thank God she did!) This is truly sickening. I hope the Toddler recovers and finds a good home. She must be completely insane. (and no, I am not making excuses, I just can't fathom that someone could sit in an apartment while her children were slowly dying.)

    I am adopted....adoption is really a great thing! My birthmother was 16 when she got pregnant...I am thankful she could make the right choice!!

    If this mother's sons that died were 7 months and 16 months, that means she got pregnant almost as soon as she got home from the hospital with the other one.....these situations are ridiculous, keep your legs closed!! I don't understand how people don't learn their lesson!! Maybe the government needs to stop supporting people that do this...they make it too easy when the blue checks keep coming in the mail. I saw a girl on Judge Judy that looked in the camera and said "Yup, thats right, all you people out there are paying for me to do nothing, i don't care, i won't do sh** until those blue checks stop coming in my mailbox" It's such a sad world.

    Limon, I would have LOVED to see Judge Judy's face when that was said!!!! Which state was it that made those who could work, do so in order to get those checks each month? They had to do SOMETHING, even if it was just watching the children of someone else getting a check so that person could look for work.

    We went through the adoption process and were accepted and put on the waiting list and I found out later that I was pregnant and the doctor determined that I probably conceived two weeks after our acceptance for adoption. The doctor said that is not uncommon and once a couple relax that sometimes they end up being able to conceive.

    I went to the doctor because I was so very tired and wanted to sleep all the time....he told me I was pregnant and I just about fainted. I just couldn't believe it and made him also do a urine and blood test after the ob/gyn exam.

    I became pregnant 28 mos. later and also had another little girl on Christmas Day. The nurses brought her to me in a big red felt stocking. I cried like a baby when they told me she was my Christmas gift from God.

    We ended up having two beautiful girls. They are grown now and have children of their own. I now have two grandchildren and another one due in May.

    We were so blessed,
    Lady Sleuth

    Is this a REAL appraisal, or are you being sarcastic?

    My take on it is you're being sarcastic.
    Please explain. TIA

    Prayers for all, Lanie

    That girl made my boyfriend and I sick. We live in Milwaukee and there's a lot of that in this city. There needs to be some kind of change in the system, the goverment makes it too easy to do nothing but be a baby factory!!

    I spent a number of years in Milwaukee, but haven't been back there in at least 22 years. I don't have to have too good of an imagination to understand what it must be like now.

    Whatever happened to welfare reform?
