Wow. Just Wow.

I don't mean to dog bioparents, but seriously, what does someone have to do for Child Welfare to stop beating around the bush and move on?

Disturbing news story here

Key Quote:

"Given what we know today, we will probably work toward terminating her parental rights and reuniting the child with his father or another relative"

Note, probably italicized by me.

Wow, what a horrible story. That poor little boy.

People like that can have as many kids as they want! Makes me so mad!

They probably want to let her work a caseplan!

Well, that's what's frustrating about this story, as well as others... okay, they are considering placing the child with biodad or biograndma? Where the hell were these people to begin with?

I'm not a parent, and I'm not going to be a parent, but I am a firm believer that there are signs well in advance that things are not going as they should and there are signs of abuse far before the more horrific abuse occurs. So I always want to know where were these other people that are willing to take the child now, back when the child was initially going through an abusive situation.

I will always believe that you should need a license before you have children to prove you are capable of raising a child without treating the child poorly.

Then if they give the baby to a relative, "mom" will likely still have access to the child and that is scary!

Why did she even bother making up a story. Like nobody would notice that there weren't bite marks on the baby. And, um, why would the baby's genitals be exposed while it was napping? Did the dog supposedly eat through the diaper, too?

Why am I trying to make sense of something someone did while on drugs?

It's just a horrible story and I hope that little boy grows up with people who cherish him. And that the mom turns herself around.

Can't even comment cause it makes me so mad/sad!

Notice that the dog has already been adopted. Sometimes we treat animals better than children in our society.
