I work at a shelter....another sad story :( and a vent

So there is this mom who had a baby, baby is 4 months old. I would se her walk around the shelter every once in a while and she always seemed pretty "of" to me, the mom did.

of course, today I get news that she had been leaving her baby in the room alone to go be strung out on drugs, she was possibly medicating the baby so she would tay asleep. OMG Just sickening to me.

The shleter had a feeling she was abusing prescriptions and what not, but it doesn't play into abuse until she actually negected her child, and that she did. CPS came and took the baby away.

you can cast your opinions ask question, whatever, I just needed to get that info out of me.
