    She couldn't have left him somewhere safe..like a fire station or police station!?

    Ridiculous. Please be safe little Cameron. You are too cute.

    Here we go again. The child could have been taken to a hospital, fire station, or police station with no questions asked. Very simple. But no, the parent.."allegedly" thought that leaving the baby on a stranger's porch is much safer. We have another parent of the year candidate. :(

    At 14 months old, a child can't be left at a fire station, hospital, or police station with no questions asked. That is just for newborns and very young infants. At 14 months, the parent would be charged with abandonment of a child. It would have been a safer place to abandon a child though than on the porch of a vacant home. Why didn't she just give the child to its father or ask the court to put the child in foster care or check into giving it up for adoption? It would be very cold on a porch in Ohio this time of year and a 14 month old can't fend for itself. I hope the baby is found safe and given to someone who will love him.

    Can't a parent call Social Services if they feel overwhelmed or feel unable to care for their children? I have heard of this before. SS will help to find a temporary placement for the kids until the parent can receive some counseling or other help. This has been my understanding but I don't know for sure.

    Sadly, I fear that "leaving him on a front porch" may be a story told by the mother to explain his disappearance. I truly hope this little cutie is found safe!! What is wrong with people! So many sweet little ones harmed or missing...........I can't even wrap my head around it.

    Yes, in theory, I think parents can do this. But the repercussions can be pretty intense....like not getting your children back when you are capable.


    I'm so mad to see this story here! Another little guy without a parent. I hope he found this time.

    Fully agree. She didn't leave him anywhere safe and sound, imo.

    I don't believe her for one second, why didn't she leave him with his father or someone else. :(

    There are no words. The past several weeks have been devastating where little guys are concerned and pregnant 20-year-olds. And I am sure there are others that we are not yet aware of...SMH in disgust.

    Prayers up for these little ones who were dealt such bad hands in their short lives. It should not have been this way.

    What is wrong with people who think children are disposable. I am horrified and just can't fathom all these children who are ending up dead at their parents hands. Some kind of national deterrent needs to be done although I don't have the answer, maybe automatic death penalty for the responsible person??? Hopefully Cameron will be found but it doesn't look promising. If he is gone rip little one,fly high with the angels.

    Her 6 year old is in DFCS custody. I have to agree with other posters on here: just let the father have him or a grandmother or somebody. The cruelty and indifference to this child's well-being is appalling and deserving of the DP in my opinion.
