  • That is horrific! The world is such a cruel place and its sad that this little tiny baby might not live. In my opinion, both parents should go to jail and never be able to have the other children back. My prayers are with the children.

  • It sounds like it was as much moms fault as dads to me. In fact where is the grandma? They live with her? How can someone not know the child hasnt been fed in this long a time? They cry and carry on. My grand daughter lived with us when she was a baby and I always knew what was up with her because I could hear her crying and carrying on. This is wrong on so many levels but if this baby dies you can bank on mom and dad being charged with manslaughter at minimum.

  • Stories like this have always bothered me, but now that I have a child and I really understand not only how helpless and dependent they are, but also how bonded I am to my child, I just don't understand people who do this. Stories like this really make me sick to my stomach. The crimes committed against children are just so despicable.

  • There is no way a baby can live to be 3mos old if not being fed since it was three wks. old. It would have starved to death long before it ever got to four weeks old. It is sad and horrific that anything like this can happen to any infant or child. They should lose all their children for the rest of their lives and be spayed and neutered. The same way animals are prevented from birthing.

  • I'm sorry for those kids having to go through that. My cousin is going through a fight with her daughter's father because he took the blame for his girlfriend shaking their newborn son - so now he's in jail while the mother who actually hurt the baby is now raising him alone and the guy has two other kids that now won't be around their dad.

  • Thats horrible! I cant imagine doing that to one of my kids, or even anyone elses for that matter. These are the types of people who should be sterilixed whether they want it or not. i wish that they could feeel alll the pain that por child has been forced to feel.

  • That is so sad. If you cant raise your children, you need to give them to someone who can raise them.

  • Can we get them sterilized?

  • That is really sad! As a mother of 5, my youngest being 3 monthes old, and a preemie ( and she weighs almost 10 lbs.) I am really hurt by the whole idea of this! I hope and pray that you can get thru this and that those kids are finally in a happy environment!
