  • That poor child. I can't imagine what he will be having to face and deal with. With the media up in his face and the loss of his siblings and on top of that having to deal with the idea that his mother was not stable is heartbreaking. My thoughts are with this boy and may we wrap our warm energy around him to so that he is safe.

  • OK I can see a 10 yr old having the sense to know he should try and get out of a sinking car. I'm glad he was able to get out

  • I hadn't heard anything about it. This sounds just as awful. It brings back the memories of Susan Smith and her two beautiful boys. I can't imagine what this poor boy must be going through. We should all keep him in our thoughts......
