    Pregnant India Dale and her boyfriend Terry Stringer decided for some reason to abandon thier 3 year old daughter at a hospital. They left the child outside the hospital, but she chased back after them. The ever caring momster Dale then took the child's hand and walked her inside the hospital. About an hour later the upstanding Stringer came back to the hospital all beligerent demanding to get his child. WTH?http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,354334,00.html

    The sorry excuse for a mother is also pregnant.

    Why do people think children are a temporary toy? You do not return them when you are sick of playing with them and they become work. I just can't understand these people. And I'm a psych major!

    Then again, perhaps she did so to protect her daughter. From my read, she eventually went into the hospital and was in the process of speaking with hospital personnel when the man came back in "demanding his baby back." Was she afraid for this child's life? Her own? I don't know. What I do know is that, anytime a woman's boyfriend kills a child, the outrage is understandably palpable.

    Regardless of what happened, this story highlights a very real problem. What about a "safe haven" for older children? From the article, it sounds like that wasn't an option for this couple. Imho, until we not only expand such programs but provide training and "real" support for young people, young mothers who are overwhelmed, we will continue reading stories about murdered children. I personally, am glad that this wasn't one.

    Can you post a link? From what I read police were interviewing the child when the dad "using term loosely" came back in demanding his child. I would love nothing more than for this to be a case of a mom trying to protect her child.

    You're right, I misread. From the original link, this is the bit I was referring to.
    India Dale, 23, took her daughter back inside the hospital's front doors before running to a waiting car.

    As police tried to interview the girl, Dale's boyfriend, Terry Singer, 25, returned to the hospital within the hour demanding "his baby," the Web site reported.
    I see now that the interviewee was the child, and not the mother. I still have mixed feelings about this. The woman didn't leave the little girl on the street to get hit, she took her into the hospital. And while it may turn out to be a case where they both abandoned the child, it is still preferable to the things we read about here.

    I agree. I just hope they don't give the child back after parenting classes.

    Absolutely! And I also hope they do a thorough investigation into what this was all about. Esp, with another one on the way.

    This is the only other thing I could find on this case. This link says the tape showed the mother "pulling" the child out of the car and leaving her there. When the dad was at the hospital they summoned the mother who showed up, and they arrested her.http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/story/603177.html

    Poor little girl.. I can just picture her running after her mommy and daddy ... How sad and heartless.
    Some people really do not deserve to have children!

    The mental stress this could put on a tiny little child has to be just too much. It's traumatic and it's abuse.

    why is anyone saying these people need to have their child back? NO WAY!
    I am gld they left her at a hospital where she would be safe but really, if they gave her back think of all the years of them telling her "You wanna go back to the hospital? or "Pick up your toys or we will drop you at the hospital".

    Parenting classes are out of the question here. Next time they will just kill her and dump her body somewhere.
    They should not have custody of the baby this witch is about to have either.

    I'm so sad for that little girl. The reality is they probably will get her back. I can't believe that this woman is pregnant...why would you want another child? I do hope that child welfare keeps a close eye on this family.

    I had the same visual, 3 years old, she's just old enough to remember this for the rest of her life. My heartbreaks for this little girl.
