  • OMG . . .I know . . . I studied about this poor little girl a while back. She has attachment disorder and some so-called "therapists" from Colorado did a horribly abusive "rebirthing" exercise and suffocated her to death while her mother watched.

    In Colorado, at that time, you could practice without a license.

    Can you imagine? Poor baby? They wrapped her up and held her down until they didn't hear her pleas any longer. Can you imagine?

    It boils my blood and I cry every time I think about that poor little baby.

  • I remember hearing about this when it happened. Soooooo horrific. These people are not only incredibly cruel, but how could they be so stupid to not know they were killing her? Honestly, it sounds to me like they hated her, and they were getting revenge.

  • There was an episode of Law & Order that covered this case. I just LOVE how they put up the disclaimer that the story is fictional & not based on any actual case. REALLY??? I love L&A. But, maybe if they would let people know they are based from REAL cases, there would be more awareness. I mean, do they really expect us to believe they come up with all these terrible things around a table & a story board?
