    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    The woman has a history of bipolar disorder and, according to the Sheriff’s Office, has had delusions.

    What a terrible struggle she must have.
    I hope they find her safe

    UPDATE: Search for missing Ingham County woman who tried to kill child last year
    In February of last year the woman was arrested in the Toledo area and charged with attempted murder after she tried to suffocate her 7-month-old daughter.
    The child survived and was returned to the father when Smith was taken into custody.
    At that time Smith, who called police to report what she had done, claimed she would rather kill the child than let her husband have custody.

    This woman attempted to kill her own baby and she's not behind bars?

    It looks like she may have been sent for psych help instead of jail.

    Interesting comments and replies to her sisters post about her missing from 21hrs ago.
    I'm feeling very sad for this family, mental health and behavioral disorders can be so hard to live with for both the person dealing with it and for their loved ones.

    What I can't figure out is, does she live alone? Someone with her history should never be left alone. She should be in some kind of care environment or a group home or something where she will be required to take her meds and check in frequently. It's really got to be hard on her family right now--not knowing if that post is just her delusions or if she is really in danger.

    Smith's last known address was on Bishop Road in Delhi Township.

    Deputies said she had been staying at Eve’s House in Lansing, a shelter for women and children, but no longer resides there.
