this is really sad..not to mislead the direction of what happened..but the poor little girl whom this happened to.. she is going to need serious psychological help..and soon..we need not another wasted/neglected child in our area(or anywhere. Hopefully someone (since it appears the mother and grandmother of this poor child) will see that this child suffers no more.

Let's not loose sight of Fayth in this discussion.
Holly seems outraged at Fayth's job position, not supportive of it.

FOCUS PEOPLE< FOCUS!
Fayth Finley is out there on the street and going into your grandmother's home to feed her (and fart),

yeah, for all of you people calling me a slut and all that crap........let me inform you that i am NOT a friend of Fayth's or support her. I was just informing her that she is now working for a home health care facility. I was appalled at finding that out and thought everyone else would to. And, for you ignorant people calling me a slut and telling me I would poison my own daughter, that is just ignorant. You don't know me or anything about me.

I think all of you seriously need help. And, this discussion has gotten so ridiculous it's not even funny. You all don't know me and don't know anything about me. I'm not the one who hurt my daughter. So, why don't you all focus on the one who did and leave me alone.

Actually she plead, not found guilty, there is a big difference.

And you may not know but this is internet harrassment and this and other posts are currently being reviewed by an attorney.

It is high time the truth came out. i'm tired of hearing that she plead guilty,but isn't really guilty. it is time fayth had a real court trial. she should have her plea withdrawn and go to trial against All the evidence. Then there will no hiding behind words.

Think what you want, I am not Fayth, I have contact with her, am will stand up for her, she does not even know about this site, much less care about some people she went to school with 10 years ago who have not grown up. I do know that what you are doing to her with threats and harassment is illegal. It is called internet harassment and this site has been turned in to Madison County for review and everyone on here can be tracked by IP addresses to computers, so no matter whom you are, whether it be people who went to school or someone on the other side of the family, you can be found and prosecuted if nessecary, even if you used a public computer, remember all places take a record. Just something to think about. Just google internet harassment and see what you find, notice posts are being deleted. Nothing I am making up! So do what you want remember I am warning you to grow up You have not only threatened Fayth, but you have threatened her family, which also is not legal. And no I am not a lawyer, but it got your attention, I have been talking to one though.

If you WERE a lawyer, you'd realize what an idiot you are. Freedom of speech and the press are a constitutional right--and if you notice, ALL the posts are still here.

It looks to me like many of you need to get a real life. I don't know her, but she has been accidentally using my email address for years. I believe many of you have harassed her through email and otherwise. In general many of you people are small-minded, small-town freaks with nothing good to put forth. If anything, based on her subscriptions that she accidentally signed up for to my address and from the emails many of you sent her, YOU sorts drove her to her the life she leads. Before you pick on her, look at yourself and how sad you are.

Ah, freedom of speech? You really believe that there is such a thing, because I personally don't.

I think that anyone who acts like they are smarter than a person with a degree in Psychology and talks about abusing another human in the same manner as the victim is absolutely insane themselves. Abuse does not cure abuse. Mental illness is a disease not a choice.

Some people need to quit watching so much Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos because couch potato degrees don't hold up in a court of law whereas a degree in Psychology from a University does.

I don't know this woman, her family, or the child, but I certainly know bullying when I see it. Being mentally abusive to someone who is already suffering makes you no better than them. Abuse is abuse. It is disgusting.

No, this person is speaking the truth. You need to be very careful what you say in these forums. They can be used against you.

I used to work with her at a day care, before the little girl was born! She was a complete hypochondriac! It was always something! She had a enough issues then, without having a child. Ironically enough, she should have more carefully picked a sperm donor, because his three children also attended this facility and let me tell you...he's a real peach! My opinion...people should be interviewed extensively before they reproduce...it would have saved this beautiful baby girl from dealing with her nutjob parents!

This case just broke my heart.

I still think about that darling little girl, mainly because her birthday and my daughter's birthday are so close together. I also have a few photos of her saved on my computer that Fayth sent me. I really, really hope she's okay and growing up in a safe environment.

I THOUGHT I knew Fayth. We exchanged e-mails, chatted on the phone a few times and even planned to meet in person. Then it all hit the fan...

I never hope I never again see a child suffer like that little girl did.
