Kids shouldn't be having kids! This just goes to show! If your going to lay down and make baby after baby after baby you know exactly what your doing and need to take full responsibility. People these days kill me they are so damn selfish Your kids should always come first no matter what. The end.

it appears that Tiffany is a narcissist from her actions and interviews - it's all about her. Attention is very important to them, and pregnancy receives a lot of attention.

She worked at a bowling alley in Abilene with a guy named Chris and they were friends on facebook.

Only the pregnancy and birth gets attention though, and soon they are left with just the work of a baby. Another pregnancy is sometimes the answer. All at once she's got 3 kids under 3 yrs old, the youngest is 6 months, and the novelty has worn off. Narcissists miss being the center of attention and at this point they would either have another baby or seek it outside the home (bars, clubs).

I don't know either personally but after reading about it online, his family knowing he was overseas and not there to support her with 3 young children being a young mother that she is. Why didn't they step in? I'm not giving her the benefit of the doubt at all. I just think that someone could have offered her assistance. How do you just not feed them and nobody noticed this? to the point of the child dieing? This is terribly upsetting to me I have 2 small children and it hurts my heart that this could have been prevented. especially with them living on base. regardless of her past, please i am 25 and was molested when I was younger (honestly who wasnt?), yes it sucks, its terrible. But get over it dwelling and being sad gets you nowhere. its no excuse is what i mean.
Just to let you know, there is a service on the Dyess AFBase that offers free child care. I think it's like 6 hours a week for moms who's husbands are deployed and need a little help. You should go to the ktxs website and read the jailhouse interview with her. It's sickening to hear her talk about how she doesn't deserve to be in jail. She actually said she's never even had a speading ticket before and now she's stuck in jail with a $500,000 bond. Poor thing....really? I just get sickened thinking about how many times those babies must have cried out. I have a 2 year old and it breaks my heart to think of that little girl crying for her mom to love on her and take care of her. It's sad.

I will say my heart absolutely breaks for these children and their father. I don't have time to read through the all of the comments, but I saw a few that blamed his family. In no way shape or form should either of their family's be blamed. We are stationed are stationed here in Texas, but are from Kentucky as well. It would have been incredibly difficult for them to know something wrong was going on. As someone mentioned the military offers a wide variety of programs to the spouses of deployed members. Things like parents night out, other free child care, if you are having problems like depression they have people to help with that. We also have key spouses, and at least for what I can say for our group when a member is deployed the key spouses will visit and have routine contact with those spouses to see how they are doing and if they need anything at all. So although something very tragic happened, and she does need to be punished for her actions. Somewhere in all of this mess supervision, key spouses, etc could have worked harder to stay in routine contact, and if they had then maybe all of this could have been prevented. As for the friend that supposedly stopped her from committing suicide, why on earth did they not go to his supervision and get her help? This should have been a huge red flag that something was wrong, and certainly could have been the intervention the children needed. Anyways my thoughts and prayers go out to this young gentleman, his family and her family.

I agree, I live down the street from where this happened just a few houses away to be exact. I have been an air Force wife since 1996. My ex- husbands squadron made a point to contact me when he was deployed. Now with my new husbands squadron never made any kind of effort to help me out while he was deployed not even to see if we needed anything. Not that I needed any help. It does get stressful at times believe me. I got sick while he was deployed and needed an ambulance escort to be taken to to er. Then after that a week later I got a call from a key spouse asking if I needed anything which at that point my husband only had 2 more weeks left out of his 6 month deployment from Afghanistan. So, I think every squadron may be different. But, she did have alot of resources to use if she choosed to all she had to do was pick up a phone and she would of received the help she needed. I pray efforts are enforced so something like this will never happen again.

IF there was a suicide attempt, I agree. However, no one but the one sitting in jail looking for a legal defense has come forward on this.
Everyone is looking for someone to blame but in reality, the only one to blame is Tiffany. Until we stop this blame game wherein everyone has an excuse for their own actions, it will continue.
Military wives have a far easier life raising children on their own than most single mothers who never have the father's presence, don't have extensive support systems, and don't live in base housing with financial security. The "military wife saga" is getting really old with those of us who work with TRULY disadvantaged mothers.

I completely agree with you Sarah the ultimate blame falls on Tiffany. But hopefully this is a wake up call for all bases, to show that we as spouses and the base as whole need to come together and recognize troubling symptoms and report them. In reality this also should be a wake up call for anyone who notices a mother might be depressed should get help. According to all the news stations in a jail interview, just weeks before the child's death she had a failed suicide attempt. Now I will say I read that some people on here have said you can't believe everything she says. I have come to known quiet a few people like that. Anyways this where was I read about the suicide attempt: http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/Family-sho...

Also Sarah I completely agree with what you stated in your last paragraph. Yes the military lifestyle is difficult and stressful at times, but there are people in this country that are truly disadvantaged and aren't able to receive the help they need. That is something that a lot of military wives fail to remember, and from my experience it is those wives that create the "military wife saga" because they don't utilize what is provided to them and gripe about not receiving more. Those are the ones that give the rest of us that bad image.

I'm aware that the news has reported that SHE said she attempted suicide. That's exactly what I'd be saying if I "let other things come first" and ended up in jail when my baby died. It's the first block in a defense building of insanity or post-partum depression. She's not stupid. Narcissists always take care of themselves!

You know, some shops don't contact their deployed members' spouses. But like y'all said, blame lays on her not the members' supervision. It's courteous to check on the spouses, not mandatory. But like we have said, she displayed no distress signals. Not even when she was hanging out at stripes at all hours of the night, as someone had mentioned in a post on an article on bigcounteyhomepage.com . I don't think her closest friends even knew about her distress. Who is this friend who supposedly stoppe her from committing suicide?

I can't believe this! That is insane. As a mother I can't imagine my child being dead in the next room and me writing on FB. Do the suicidal act like this? Do post-partum depressed moms act like this. I sure hope this comes out for the jury to see when she goes to trial. Surely the cops know about this?

Taberlee and Tatum are doing well physically. Obviously, there are emotional issues that will need to be dealt with. Taberlee is afraid of being alone, of being in a room with doors, and other things.
The girls are still in the hospital but their grandma and papa are with them as well as nurses and hospital volunteers.
Thomas is still tied up with Air Force red tape at Dyess. I cannot imagine how much he desires to see his girls.
So many issues to deal with in the coming weeks for the family including making sure Thomas has help with the girls, professional help for Taberlee, laying Tamryn to rest, Etc.
Keep Thomas and the girls in your prayers. This family needs them.

Im glad the girls are doing better.
But the mother, why keep talking about her and giving her the attention she desires. Let her rot in prison, sit in her own filth and waste. Don't feed her and let her deteriorate into nothing. When she screams, ignore her. When she cries, ignore her, when she has burns on her face and body from sitting in her own feces...ignore it. I personally don't care about her. Any women that can let her children waste away like that is the epitome of pathetic and pitiful. She was on Facebook while her own flesh and blood was dying. A helpless innocent baby that knew no right from wrong. Tiffany was weak, crazy, a narcissist. All she wanted was attention. There are millions of other army wives that struggle the same as she did. But do they kill their children? Let them starve? Sit in their own urine and wastes? No. They are more human than that. More responsible and rational. Tiffany will play the pity card but no one cares. No one pities her. How could you?!
She needs to be in prison the rest of her days. I only pray that god watches over Thomas and his little girls.

"Mark was never charged......" Error

Correction: Social Services substantiated the charges against Mark Scott and he was charged in Family Court for neglect and sexual abuse of his two younger adopted children. Due to the fact that the criminal trial preceded the lower court trial and the criminal charges where reduced in the plea bargain, No further action could be taken against him in the lower court. He was charged with Sexual Mis-conduct with a minor in the criminal trial.

The younger children have the right to request a criminal trial concerning their abuse from Mark Scott. Mark Scott could face charges against him from the now teenage girls. Due to severe trauma from their abuse as well as developmental delays, these children have been protected from the court room chaos.

If you need to post any further comments, please verify the accuracy of your statements prior to posting.

If you don't know the family or the ordeal you shouldn't judge, Tiffany needed help and refused to get the help she needed so desperately, so don't let her "poor pitiful me" act make you think otherwise. The family of Tiffany and her husband (though being so far away) would have came and helped at any time all she had to do is call. The babies are what need to be worried about and prayed for.
This mother needed psychiatric help her entire life. She never developed a correct understanding of love and empathy. She was unable to love, as many people understand love.

Having a history of severe neglect in her early years and abuse that continued until age 16, she was unable to feel or give love. She refused therapy and medication which would have helped her with her psychiatric challenges.

Please know that yes she has psychiatric issues but I believe that SHE WAS NOT SUFFERING FROM POST PARTUM DEPRESSION. I believe she was suffering from a history of neglect and abuse which left her with severe Reactive Attachment Disorder.

Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) means you never develop the ability to love anyone and you don't develop a normal conscience. She doesn't understand it is her fault. Some how in her mind She dismisses her behavior. These are common responses from a person with Reactive Attachment Disorder.

She does know right from wrong and has the ability to do the right things. This in, no way, releases her or mitigates what she did. It is offered as a possible explanation to how a mother can do this.

KY Girl,

Thank you for remembering her family in this horrible tragedy. Tiffany's adoptive Mother and family lost a beautiful grand daughter and a daughter all in the same day. Our brokeness is devastating. The grand babies have lived a horrible trauma and will have many emotional challenges to overcome.

Truly, no one could have imagined or for seen this tragedy. Tiffany is a master manipulator and was able to live 2 identities, a skill she learned from her adoptive father, Mark Scott.
