    Mom & BF Starve 4 yr old Girl

    The boyfriend didn't want to feed the little girl because she wasn't his. The mom therefore didn't feed her because she didn't want to argue with her boyfriend.

    Parents Arrested: 4-year daughter weighs just 23 pounds
    Last Update: 6:28 pm

    A mother and her boyfriend are accused of not feeding her 4-year-old daughter. Police say the little girl weighs only 23-pounds. The couple is now behind bars.

    According to the arrest affidavits, Luis Valenzuela and Robin Palafos only fed the little girl cereal once a day or sometimes macaroni and cheese. Police she was so malnourished she was the size of a one-year-old.

    Officers were tipped off by someone in a doctor's office who noticed the girl was frail had sores on her hips and could see her bones.

    “The child appeared to be very hungry, and the nurse gave her a sandwich, which she ate very fast, according to the report, and had an empty sippy cup,” explained Sgt. Matt Porter from the San Antonio Police Department.

    According the affidavit the mom was afraid to get into an argument with her boyfriend about feeding the baby, so she didn't. The boyfriend says he didn't feed the little girl because the child isn't his.

    I was just reading this at another news site....ugh.

    The mother admitted to investigators that there was plenty of food in the home and Valenzuela said he did not feel like feeding the girl because she was not his child.

    I wonder how Valenzuela "feels" about being cuffed & locked up.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    It looks to me as the couple ate very well, in fact well enough that the "Mother" could have easily given her daughter one of her meals each day.

    Thankfully they at least brought her to the clinic! I hope this "Mother" is never allowed to have responsibility for her daughter again!

    Ugg is right. Maybe we can all refuse to feed the POS? After all, its our tax dollars and he isn't our kid. How mean. Why are people so darn mean? Just because they can be, right?

    this is not meant to be offensive to overweight people, but it seems in a lot of these child starvation cases, the parents do appear to be lacking of food

    I don't post here at all, but I do read daily. Based on the huge number of horrible acts against children that are here I don't know what to do. Reading about it is just becoming a daily ritual I wish I didn't have to do, what can we do? Ranting about funding or supervision is fine, but how do we promote change? I'm Canadian, so what can I do up here? Enough is ENOUGH. How many dead children are listed on the first page of this forum? One too many, that's how much.

    I swear if I was in charge I would put those 2 POS 's in a cell and never feed or water them again.Neither one of them should ever be allowed to have or be around children again.What a sickening sight they both are.

    I really am all for starting a letter campaign to the Sheriff/Chief and the Judge in the jurisdiction of these POSs and telling them they may NOT use my tax dollars to feed the scum. Then all the letters can be collected and presented during the sentencing hearing. The POSs go to jail - but get only mac & cheese 1 time per day because the tax payers DON'T want to feed their scummy arses.

    I am so glad that someone stepped up and did the right thing. Praying that this baby recovers and gets placed with a real family. Hope that the POS's that did this get some heavy time and not slaps on the wrist.
    Happy New Years

    Police say couple admits feeding girl just barely

    Express-News article. Not much new here.
    ---
    Palafos told police Valenzuela ordered her to feed her daughter only cereal and only once a day. She obeyed because she didn't want to start an argument and was afraid her fiance would leave, the affidavit says.
    ---
    Valenzuela denied the accusation and told police he did not feed the girl because it was not his place to interfere with how Palafos raised her child. He told police he was “not a responsible person and should not have children,” the affidavit says.

    But, but, but...what?

    I'll be honest, I can't imagine anyone telling me not to feed my child. But, how can any person just say, "Okay, I won't feed her. I just don't feel like the fight today."

    Crap, I'm starting to feel like the minority for never letting an abusive man come into my life and turn me into an abuser. Too bad we can't actually sterilize him to make sure that he never does have kids of his own.
    Why would a woman with kids date a man that isn't responisble enough to have kids...and admits it?

    The mother's myspace shows her talking about them selling their car. They were worried that they weren't doing the right thing for selling it in payments..."the right thing."

    I could just spit.
