If everyone faced a little or a lot of infertility priorities might be more in line. I endured five years of infertility. Thanks to the Jones Institute I have a 16yr old son. Lucky to have even one child.

Leaving you baby or child in a hot car while you go shopping is not a mistake. She knew exactly what she was doing so cut the crap.

<quoted text>i hope she get her kids taken away,pets taken away,hell anything with value needs to stay away from this piece of crap mother...yea THANK GOD THE KIDS NOT DEAD...i hate when mothers do this type of stuff,a baby cant talk and tell you its fckn hot,just like a animal...shes needs to get locked up...and you need to stop defending such a stupid,dumb,lazy NO GOOD MOTHER
i think if anyone is stupid lazy or dumb,it's you !!!!!!nobody said that what she did was right ,but you can't judge a person by what the news tells you,she is not some junky and drunk mother who went in a store to buy her a can of beer....she went in and bought a chocolate bar for her son ,who she took with her and a bag of head bands for her daughter who was sleeping in the car ,feeling sorry for her ,so she decided not to wake her up...she didn't buy a thing for herself,not one thing...it was a stupid mistake,but she doesn't deserve to be locked up!!!!!and another thing if the police had just one ounce of doubt,that she was a bad mother they wouldn't have sent her home with her children after exactly two hours,the baby was released also, after 15 minutes only from the hospital,in perfect health...she was wearing a cute dress with beautiful white shoes...i mean the news would never tell you that,it would not be really good news then .
there is a difference between a bad mother,who doesn't care about anyone but herself,and a mother who made a bad decision .

yes she parked her car right in front of the store,left the window half open,and left to buy her a bag of head bands,because she was sick and tired of her,and wanted to get rid of her.....seriously!!!!

I don't know where YOU came from Bubba,but you must have the same intilect that this excuse of a mother lacks. ANYONE with a grain of COMMON SENSE does not leave an 11 month old baby in a car while ahe and her son go inside shopping.Did it ever occur to your limited nind that someone could break into the car,take the baby and then demand a ransom for the return of the child?You must be the ptoduct of an out-of-wedlock,and limited educated person who never got past the 4th grade in school. As for the crack about mommy and daddy being good parents,they sure missed the mark on this one, If it happens again,let's hope both MOMMA,and DADDA, are arrested and locled UNDER the jail for stupidity...

i hope your eyes stay rolled and never go back..being judgmental is something that even your own country says it's something that people should stop doing(if you've seen primetime last night ,you will understand),but maybe someday you will learn not to judge people ,by what people say....example:
if you had a straight A son ,who never got in trouble and always volunteers and cares about people,had a bad day and life doesn't seem fair, he choose carelessly to drink a can of beer,and drive home which was three blocks away, accidentally hitting someone...do you think that your son ,a very good person,should go to jail,even though he hasn't eaten nor slept since the accident,and regret is just eating him alive.........
i believe that when you have kids and see in your own eyes that when you raise your children the same way,same rules,and they do something wrong ,one says i'm sorry and truly regrets it ,as soon as he sees that disappointment in your eyes and the other ,even if you were to punish him for a week,will repeat it.
jail is for bad ,criminal people,who do only harm to humans,not for a kid who had a bad day,and will never repeat it, after what he's been through,nor a mother who was a straight A student,never even had a speeding ticket,doesn't drink nor smoke,and her life is about her kids and husband........never judge a book by it's cover !!!!

She left her child in a hot parked car for at least 30 minutes; there is no justification for that type of behavior. Your so called example is lame so quit defending this person who knowingly put her child into extreme danger and is obviously a close friend and or family member of yours.

Sorry, but society has seen far too much of this type,of wrecklesness to think otherwise.This type of behavior is demenstrated time and again by those who do not think before they act,or just plain are too lazy to take the extra time to use common sense.Watch ANY local news broadcast and somewhere.sometime you will see this pattern over and over again by those who have cjildren,but don't take proper care for their safety. As for Drinking a beer and then gpong out and having an accideny,there is no second chance to right the wrong,the deed is done and ir will live with the driver for the rest of their lives.
