    Yup -- I'm not impressed. Whether Baby Annabelle stillborn or not, doesn't discount for me that Skylar did not want this child, period.

    At age 3, I buried a dead baby bird in the garden inside my little shoe. That's instinct of a 3 year old to desire to protect something tiny, helpless, and precious to you.

    Skylar took her infant that grew inside her, stripped of any creature comfort-- of which she had plenty, and shoved her in ground pit suitable for a tulip bulb. Washed her hands and went to the gym to celebrate her "belly is back," and take her boyfriend to a baseball game.

    SMH...me too.

    “She is adapting to this normal life. If the right man comes along, she will date but she has never talked about marriage,” Kim said.

    Fighting the eating disorders are a priority. Recently, they took Skylar to a specialist.

    “We have taken her to the hospital and her doctor but it took a long time to get an appointment with a specialist,” Scott said.


    I thought she was supposed to be going to inpatient right away.... nope, same old thing.... how many years is this? They will 'guard' her and continue to excuse her actions..... she did NOTHING wrong in her mother's mind. Pitiful. And it still all about them.... UGH.

    Wow, I'm sure that's a load off the Johnsons' minds that there's "no negative feelings" towards them for their justifiable grief and anger. Very gracious of Kim to agree to talk to them "if" the Johnsons do the difficult bit and approach them.

    Mother will spend life in prison for throwing newborn baby over neighbor’s fence

    23-year-old mom admitted she woke up that morning with stomach pains and "the baby just came out."

    She threw her suffocated baby over the fence to the neighbors' yard and will spend the rest of her life in prison, no chance of parole. Safe Haven Law available here too.

    Since 2000, Colorado has had a Safe Haven Law where a parent can hand over a newborn up to 72 hours old to an employee at a fire station or hospital with no questions asked.

    One walks out with no worries in the world, the other is spending life in prison. Amazing what a little money, photos of a tiny blond cheerleader and acting can do. There should NOT be this much of a difference in sentence in these 2 cases. While there are major differences and no proof Annabelle was born alive (I still believe she took a breath) these extremes are just ridiculous.

    She still buried her in the backyard and told NO ONE. It was because of the decomp that they couldn't prove if she was stillborn. People felt sorry for her on that jury. And the prosecution overcharged. It should have been a different outcome.

    But you said yourself that there was no evidence that Annabelle was born alive. She did indeed bury her in the backyard which is why she was found guilty of abuse of a corpse.

    These are two completely different cases, there's no point comparing the two. Bringing her stature and hair colour into it is just nonsense for which there is absolutely no evidence.

    Skylar was convicted for the only crime for which they had evidence. That's how the justice system works. We don't convict people for murder based on guesswork.

    It's probably about time both families were allowed to get on with their lives and for Annabelle to be allowed to rest peacefully.

    This is Skylar’s:

    On April 26, 2017, less than two weeks before senior prom, her mom, Kim, took Skylar to her first-ever gynecologist appointment. For years, her periods had been irregular—sometimes super heavy, sometimes super light, occasionally not at all, and, lately, sporadic spotting. Plus, Kim knew that Skylar had been engaging in “adult actions” with her then-boyfriend, Brandon. Skylar was months away from the rest of her life—she was headed to the University of Cincinnati to study psychology that fall. And Kim wanted to get her on the pill to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. “I only want you to reach your potential and not have any roadblocks,” Kim texted Skylar the day before the appointment.

    Under chlorine-white fluorescent light, in a paper gown that ripped when she moved, Skylar listened as her ob-gyn, William Andrew, MD, told her she was about 32 weeks along. The pill wasn’t necessary. She was already pregnant. And well into her third trimester. One of her first thoughts: I can’t have a baby. Another: This can’t be true. She doesn’t deny that she was scared.

    Does she really care now, or is she just saying the things she knows people want to hear?

    and prepping for the Lifetime movie, tv interviews whatever? Sorry, i still don't buy it. I think she is fairly good at playing a part, and that she uses it to her advantage.
