    This isn't the first time I've read about a parent, step-parent or caregiver biting an infant. What is with that? I can't understand harming a child at all, but biting???

    What the heck is in the water in Florida?

    I know that stuff happens all over the world, but for some reason it seems Florida is a melting pot.

    RIP little baby girl.

    So sorry for your loss. I feel the same way. In fact, I did stay away for nearly a year at one point. But when I come here, it is the little ones that draw my attention, even though those are the stories that hurt the worst. I think we all wish there was more we could do for them. And even turning to CPS isn't always an answer, as we have seen over and over. It's very frustrating but neither can we give up on them.

    Lord have Mercy, what is going on? This is almost too sad and difficult to envision. I have to believe that many of these killers had people around them that ignored signs that abuse might be occurring. I am sorry but I just don't understand how people just snap one day and kill their children. I really believe there must be signs to some degree that abuse is going on.

    Please people report the red flags you see. A child's life could be saved.

    Oh my God I am so SICK of these sperm and egg donors hurting/killing their babies! Babies cry! It's their only way of communicating their needs and wants! If you can't handle a baby crying, USE PROTECTION or give the baby up for adoption to a family who will love and cherish the child like he or she deserves! Or just CALL someone and have them come help out to care for the baby if you're at your breaking point. Don't harm your innocent little angels.

    My own 18-month-old baby is sitting here all cuddled up with me right now and I just can't for the life of me imagine EVER harming her in ANY way. I just don't get what goes through these peoples' minds. I just want to cry for all these poor babies out there that never got the chance to be loved like they so deserved. I wish I could have shown them what it feels like to be loved and safe
