How did this story not make the news?

I don't remember hearing anything about this...the child abuse stories that make the news are SO selective...the mommy blogger that recaps the story is someone I've grown to like, and when she shared the story of heart breaking child abuse that her husband's coworker is working hard to correct...well, I cried like a baby.

This is a hard story to  read...http://www.themarthaproject.com/2011/01/28/my-most-important-post-ever/

  • There are many stories about horrific child abuse that never get picked up by the AP or other national outlets. To be frank, I think it's all too common, and unless there is a huge public outrage in the local community the nationals just don't give it any attention. A child being abused isn't news, its the people involved that are, as sick as that seems.

  • I hope the mother is murdered is prison! Sick B****! That poor child. I sure hope he'll be okay when he gets old enough to understand.

  • My heart and prayers go out to little Holden. I cant wrap my head around how a mother can cause so much pain to her child. I hope she pays for what she did to him for the rest of her life.

  • Poor little sweet boy. He's adorable and I'm so sorry he's going to have to deal with so much pain and struggle throughout his life. Especially when he realizes that he will NEVER have kids. He's an angel along with the people that are helping to raise him.

  • It's actually in the news here, but I live in the Houston area so I bet that's why. They often update when they can. It is terribly heartbreaking. And while I feel absolutely terrible for him, I also feel terrible for the hundreds of boys who are circumcised every day. That was, after all, the excuse she gave for her reasoning.
