    How horribly sad. I hope they find the father but they will be in good care til then. They must be so frightened.

    Oh Dear GOD! How awful.

    If that doesn't make you cry I don't know what will. GOD help those children and bless Greyhound for doing the right thing and getting them to their destination for free.

    Bless their souls. I wonder what ages they are? Not that it matters. Just curious.

    Just looked at the second link. They are so young but definitely old enough to understand what's happened.

    I have been praying they have a good dad, just like you longtallcold. I don't understand the situation but hope these little ones have someone to care for them. GOD help them. I cannot imagine and have not been able to let go since I first read this story.

    FYI her Facebook says she is happily married to a wonderful man. I hope that eases everyone's concerns like it did mine.
    Clear your mind must be, if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot. Opinion only, my posts are.

    Golly, I have to stop coming to WS when I am working and/or exhausted--which is most of the time. I saw this post again while looking for updates on these babies and had to LOL. I now realize you were referring to YOUR heart as a mother, not to your actual mom. Duh.... Sorry. :-)

    Why did the coroner's office publish her name and cause of death? It was not a crime or anything so why wasn't she entitled to posthumous privacy?

    I don't believe there is entitlement to privacy for the dead.
    Just my opinion

    She may not care any more but her family is alive and might not have wanted their tragedy exposed in the media.

    I don't understand why the cause of death of a woman dying of natural causes needs to make the news.

    She died of a blood clot due to obesity at the age of 29. Maybe there's been speculation that the husband "did it", so it could have been released to ensure that the air was clear about that.
