Where were these concerned parents when this baby was pulled out of there home and placed with this foster family? We as foster parents go through months of schooling and seminars and manual training and having our homes scrutinized just so we can take in your children when you are unable to provide them with a safe environment. We do this out of love for wanting to help! Why would you think a woman would put herself through this tiresome training if she was not devoted to these kids? Now that this tragic accident has happened...you want to crucify her for doing what was technically your responsibility! If charges are brought up don't you think the birth parents should be charged first for neglecting to take care of their own child?

I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE PARENTS BUT
ALSO I THINK THE FOSTER PARENT HAS TO TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILTY FOR HER ACTIONS SHE TOOK THE RESP
FOR THE CHILD SO THEREFORE SHE SHOULD TAKE SOME OF THE BLAME I ALSO DONT THINK SHE NEEDS TO HAVE ANYMORE CHILDREN PLACED IN HER HOME YOU CANT
JUST GO AND BLAME THE PARENTS REGAURDLESS OF WHY
SHE WAS THERE THIS WOMAN WAS SUPPOSE TO TAKE CARE OF HER HOW CAN YOU GO TO SLEEP BEFORE YOU HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN OUT OF THE CAR NOT JUST SOME OF THEM.SHE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER ACTIONS.

Our "Knee-jerk" reaction is to judge this woman harshly, and to think: "lock her up & throw away the key". But, I happen to know her personally and I was in complete SHOCK when I first heard about this because of how I know this woman to be. She is one of the best, patient, most loving mothers I know. You DO NOT have all the facts !! You DO NOT know everything that happened!! After being extremely ill for a few days prior, she dropped these kids off with 2 different baby sitters, went to the Dr., took prescribed medication immediately after leaving Dr.'s office. If she had known how this medication was going to affect her, she WOULD NOT have taken it until other arrangements were made involving childcare. I'm not making an excuse....there is none....I'm simply providing TRUE FACTS about what happened to hopefully help others understand how this horrific incident could have happened. There is NO punishment handed down to her that can even compare with the punishment she is doing to herself over this. She is suffering now and will suffer the rest of her life for this. She loved this baby....she is a good mother. Please, someplace, in the bottom of your hearts, find some compasion and say a prayer for her and ALL OTHERS involved!! Sad, but true, "Bad, Bad things happen to Good, Good people"!! Thank you for considering my comments and this information.
And please pray for ALL involved. Thank You.
