Former addict here. And if I may state my own opinion... I think it's deplorable what this woman has done. I could not imagine doing this, even during the bleakest, darkest, most miserable point in my addiction, I would've given my child to someone that could for them before risking their life. She shouldn't have anyone making excuses for her. What about the baby? The one without a voice? There is TOO much help out there, readily available to those that want it. If she is from such a great family, why wasn't that baby with them? Why did she feel like she couldn't come to them with this? Why didn't she drop the baby off before scoring her dope? Before shooting up? If she was raised right, seems like she would've dropped that child off at grandmas house for a little visit and then go do her dope. If you're a good person, why the hell would you put you or your baby in that situation? She was in so much of a hurry she couldn't go home after dropping baby off? Doing it Ina grocery store bathroom like a homeless crackhead? What the heck drove her to that?! Stop with excuses because there are none. Get help and give your child to someone that can care for them, stop being selfish, stop playing the addict card, you want to be a good mom? Give your baby a better life if you can't give
Her that yourself. Someone else will, that will be the best thing you ever do for her if you choose not to get sober.
