Well...let's wait a minute here. Let's examine this situation from her perspective. It says that she "allegedly" swapped the children...we're not actually sure that she did. While the sway (if it happened) might seem a bit off the mark to us......she evidentally had her reason(s) for the swap. Maybe the cockatoo is less of a challenge. Hey...today the children, at least some of them certainly ARE a challenge. Twelve year-olds blowing their teachers away with handguns, etc. Where's "Dad" in all of this? HE evidentally must have traded his life for something other than the children..... No "Dad" in the picture? If "Dad" is enjoying his piece and quiet....why not allow "Mom" to enjoy her cockatoo...? The point is...if this woman did trade the children in for a cockatoo.....it sounds as though they are better off without her.

Poor babies!! Hopefully there will be a bright and happy ending for them when all of this is done.

I have heard that this goes on more than we realize. That is absolutely horrible. I just don't understand how people think that is ok.

It wasn't the children's mother who did the swap it was a convicted pediphile who had the children.

According to the news, the police are not even sure if she wasa pedafile. It is a really big mess and those poor children are caught up in it.

Sounds like something Dreama Lanclos would do! Read some of the post on the Port Barre Topix about this lunatic! What about her kids not getting the proper care to go to school. The school nurse wants them to see a doctor and she and her husband told the nurse not to put her hands on their kids anymore. What's up with that? Why weren't child services brought in if they refuse to bring their kids to a doctor because they need medical care? What about the kids in their class? Shouldn't parents know if they have something viral or others kids can get. Those kids are nothing but trouble makers!

well, i agree with you that child services should have been called, but by your saying those kids are nothing but trouble makers is wrong. in case you don't know most children act the way they are taught by their parents so you should have said " THOSE KIDS PARENTS ARE NOTHING BUT TROUBLE MAKERS", because a child only knows what comes from home and maybe they act out so that someone will help them, have you ever thought of calling social service, it can be annoyomus, JUST A THOUGHT, let's help the children, not blame them for their parents short coming, god bless
