Read the news and see that the child was in care of others, not the parents. Are you that clueless?

I think not my 9 mth old fell off a bed 3 feet maybe more up with no carpeted floir while in the care of gis grandparents when they laid him down for a nap while I was at work.,he barely had a bruise. Soooo someone slammed this poor baby and they should get the.same treatment. Death.

The baby was in foster care,he was put there by CPS because the parents failed a drug test for smokeing pot, and now there son is dead because of abuse by the foster parents, there were pics taken of bruises on the child at a visits before this happen, that are now in the hands of investigators, these foster parents should be in jail for murder!!!! But the cops don't want the county to be sued for wrongful death!!

The parents should have been taking proper care of their child instead of doing drugs and all would have been avoided, don't balme DSS for bad parenting.

Not to minimize what happened to the child, it is an awful tragedy and I feel bad for the family, parents included, what I get angry about is balming CPS for poor parenting choices. Background checks, rigorous training, home studies etc, are all perfomred on people before they can become foster parents, if nothing comes up, how would DSS know that there is a problem. There woudl be home visits to ensure everything was ok and the child would have beens een by caseworkers, any issues would have been addressed and if necesasry the child would have been removed. Hopefully this was all an accident, yes they do happen, more often than we would hope.

Was Anna Mulligan involved in this? She is an expert on abusing and neglecting children as well as drugs and prostitution.

To "someone that knows" you really know NOTHING!!! That baby was well cared for by the foster parents and they treated him like he was their own son. They are very loving and were compassionate enough to take in someone else's child since the parents are pieces of shit who bring drug addicted babies into this world. The parents just are looking for someone to blame. Its a little too late to act like you care when they didn't give a damn about their son the whole 1st year of his life or at least not enough to get their act together and do what was best for him. Not to mention the CPS workers, the parents and the pediatrition saw him on a regular basis. There was no abuse because they did not abuse him. It was an ACCIDENT that he fell and hit his head and they did the right thing and sought immediate medical attention. If anything there were a few mistakes in his medical treatment that worsened his condition and only after 1 week in the hospital the parents took him off life support. Anyone that knows the foster parents knows their character and that they would never harm a child. They are deeply saddened by this tragedy as are anyone who had the joy of spending time with him.

I have to ask you something? First of all I wont defend the parents! I will say at the time of child's DEATH were doing better than they had in months as far as doing what they had to. You are right 100 percent they should have gotten crap together and they should have listened to family that tried to tell them and even begged them and did all they could to help them. Help them to the poi9nt they drained just about everyone emotionally and financially helping them.
That I agree on! I also agree that the Foster parents with out a doubt went into Foster care with the best of intentions. No Doubt. Now I have to say this . DO NOT JUDGE the FAMILY for removing that life support. It was not only the parent's decision it was a entire family talking for days about what should be done. You did not see what he looked like, you did not sit there and have a DR. look you in the face and say, "NO HOPE". Did you have a second DR. tell you the EXTENT of his injuries and have to leave the room to puke?

Mistakes in Medical care that delayed treatment? How do you know that? What gives you the right to know when the Family does not even know there was mistakes. You do know that he had Aunt's and Uncles and Grandparents as well as parents dont you? Do you think this was easy? Did you see the MRI? Did you hear what they were going to do to him if he was left on life support? DID YA SEE THE FRACTURE? DID YA SEE THE BRUISES? DID YOU? Do not judge a family who tried very hard with those parents and who loved that baby for taking him off life support. Pray if something should happen to you and your on life suppor that someone does not take a week to make that decision. This is a horrible thing. I admit that you are probably right on just about everything you said. I just want to make that clear. Do not think that was easy decision.

Yet everyone judges the foster parents and accuses them of horrific things. No I did not see him after he fell but I did see him many many times in the two months before he fell and he NEVER had bruises, so who ever says he did is full of SHIT! I am so sick and tired of people making assumptions and making false accusations and false statements against the foster parents. They are good people and good loving parents and now their lives too will always be effected by this. I realize that there are people in this world who are capable of harming a child and I would be the first to want justice for this but that is NOT what happened here.

I wass in a respit/foster care for 5 days. i have no idea how the mother of baby Glen can just not bother seeing him. im not trying to be rood or anything but just becuse your son Glen looks like Willy dose not meen you should give him up and use " he looks to much like Willy" as a way to say you cant see Glen. Glen is an amazing baby and is doing very well. His smile is so cute. The mother of these baby boys needs to take it into concentration that there is a little boy in Foster care that needs to be with his mother where he belongs. Why have him bounce foster care to foster care and wonder who mommy and daddy is. i might be a 14 year old girl but i know how a baby or a child should be treated. bring your baby boy home. he needs the love from his real family. Margret is taking good care of him.
