This girl had obvious mental deficiencies. She was also easily led. She resided with her mother who refused to believe or accept she was pregnant even though it was brought to her attention that she appeared pregnant. How could some who works for the state of connecticut and cares for people ignore the fact that her own mentally challenged daughter was pregnant? How could she not hear this girl giving birth in the bathroom next to the bedroom she was a sleep in? The baby was 9 lbs. I can't believe that this could actually have been a silent birth. What about the mess in the bathroom? I would think that would be a clue something was not right when she found her daughter bleeding. When she saw that Amanda was bleeding why didn't she tell the doctors her daughter was pregnant and she gave birth. Why didn't she insist Amanda say where she put the baby that is if she was the one who put the baby in the dumpster. Even if Amanda did put that baby in the dumpster isn't her mother who assisted in her care somehow responsible? I just wonder if it was Amanda who burried that baby in the dumpster and not someone else encouraging her to do it or who did it for her. It is sad how some people think if the ingnore something it will go away. I sure hope her mother does not ignore those she cares for on her job like she ignored her own mentally challenged daughter.

This is truly a sad story. Anyone that hurts a newborn baby should held accountable.
