Freaking unbelievable. No parenting class can cure what she has.
As for giving the baby to the grandma... well look at Jhessye Shockley grandma or Caylee Anthony's grandma. Both of those grandmas KNOW their daughter's killed their baby girls and they defend the killer to the end.
Sometimes Grandma is just another nut in the family tree and the kid needs to be far away from all of them!!!
Cyrus C. convicted of 2004 arson in Harvey, La. that killed 4 people, including his 19-month-old daughter, his teenage girlfriend, the girlfriend's mom and GF's young brother (age 11). He was acquitted in 2008 (state charges) in 2008 and found GUILTY (federal charges) in 2013
Katydid23 was being sarcastic in her mention of "parenting". We all agree that no amount of parenting classes can fix a defective soul.
For Travis Alexander, a human being. Justice will prevail.

Found this link that has more details of what happened and a link to copies of the police reports on the mother and father, on his domestic abuse case:
The father BTW said the grandmother is 'wonderful' but not sure I trust his judgement. Apparently she already had the other child and was trying to get custody and this child was also placed with her when she got out of the hospital. CPS is supposed to do a home study on her.
Not every kid in foster care was abused just because the case was founded.
I've been watching CPS and child abuse cases for over 25 years. I've seen them from both sides of the fence. I could open a thread with the various cases.
And I'm also aware of several cases where they considered them unfounded and the child/children were definitely abused. There was one when the mother got tired of the baby screaming so she put a pillow over baby's face. I think she took it off as soon as he stopped crying, and thank God the child was still breathing.
