Okay look, I feel like telling you all what has been on my mind since I started getting crap from this in my E-mail. You all have your own opinion and that's great, but you need to realize that both sides will never agree and you need to agree to disagree. I'm sorry but its been four years now I believe and people are still arguing about what Erica did or didn't do, what punishment she should or shouldn't get, and really its not up to you. It's great that you all know how to tell people what you think, but there is a time and a place for it. This is no longer the time nor the place for it. It's time to move on and let what happens happen and let Sarah rest in peace, because as long as everyone is fighting over what happened she wont be at rest. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if she was looking down shaking her head at all of us for still arguing about it. The only people who know what happened are Sarah, Trevor, and Erica. We cannot change what happened and we cannot make accurate decisions because we haven't looked at the evidence. You don't have to listen to me because I'm "just a child" but some of you are acting like small children by not letting one another have your own opinions and leaving it at that. You may not like someones opinion, but that doesn't give you the right to attack them. That in all honesty makes you look like a bully (I don't have a better word for it). I know half of you wont listen, a quarter of the other half will laugh and reply with something hateful, and the other quarter of that half will agree with me. Like I said before, You don't have to like it and you don't have to listen to me, but you need to Agree to Disagree. That's all.

Yeah a smart inteligent 7 year little girl just gets in a bath tub of scalding hot water and lays there without saying a word. Makes complete sense to me.
I agree. She needs just punishment for what she has done. I as an adult knows when water is too hot for me so I know that child would know the difference!

And do you knows how to spell?? She has lived with knowing she is being punished for something she HAS NOT DONE! Erica, is living without contact from her son or her family. If this were one of your family members would you want someone to come on her bashing her not knowing ALL the facts and THE WHOLE STORY? OH but wait, the media NEVER lies, and neither do things that are on the internet. Good god, if you read that the world was ending tomorrow, or they found big foot in Georgia half you idiots would pack a bag to go find him, and the other half would dig a hole and go underground

I met Erica a short time before she killed her stepdaughter. I was introduced to her by another military wife and good friend of mine. I noticed how alwful she treated her step daughter complete oppisite on how she treated her son. It made me sick. There wasnt a moment she wasnt yelling at the little girl or threatening her with a belt when she didnt listen to orders. Erica and I didnt get along right off the bat. I only wish I had done something more back than like call cps. Theres no doubt in my mind that she killed her step daughter she deserves to rott in hell. I never met her husbun but he had to realize the hostility his wife had towards his daughter it just goes to show how careful you need to be when allowing someone around your children. My prayers go out to little sarah may she have the loving attenchen in hevan that she never recieved from her short life here on earth.

Look, I'm a family member of Erica, and all of you are full of shit. You are insulting a mother, why would she KILL her step daughter when she is a mother of a son? hmmm? Explain that one too me, the only thing I ever saw Erica do to Sarah was spank her when she had an attitude, what do you do when your kid talks back? Laugh? Yeah, probably not, take into consideration that Erica is not the heartless bitch you are trying to make her look like. All Erica is guilty of is loving that little girl, what about her own mother? Why didn's she have Sarah? Oh yeah, the State of Missouri took her children away, sounds to me like Erica is a better mom than Sarah's "egg donor". I love Erica, and I'm standing beside her 110%, you know why? Because she is my family, and I KNOW she DIDN'T DO it.

Family or no family Erica held that baby under the scalding water then picked her up with a towel and wrapped her body in a freaking wool blanket and drove her to a px oh yeah after she poured canned milk on her and collected the babies skin in a freaking bag oh and the hospital was 4 blocks from the damn px i sat in the county watching her act like nothing was suppose to happen to her but at her weakest moments she would talk about the situation but with no remorse or any feeling about it at all it was more of a i told you id snap if my husband left again but who is full of shit seems like you having the nerve to say we are full of shit why don't you look at the family tree you fell from

Hey, douchebag, I'm from Georgia - born and raised.$1,000 says that I'm more intelligent, more educated, and more successful than you are.

This Melissa person is a military wife. She might be from Georgia, but she could also be from one of the other 49 states. Typically military people come from places like Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, or Pennsylvania. You go ahead and bet that she's from Georgia, and I'll take the field. Wherever she's from, she's the young wife of an enlisted dude - not exactly a Rhodes scholar.

Either way, stop acting like you're the smartest guy in the room. Clearly you're not that clever, just annoying...
