That's ridiculous! They need to find work and not beg on the streets with their child. How they got to that point is common for drug addicts. Shame on them and that poor child should be adopted.

where in the article did it say anything about drugs ?
i would agree they made some bad choices like keeping the dog, and not asking for help from other family membefrs living in the area.
I hope they get real help soon for the baby's sake.
