  1. She should not be able to see the light of day. She killed her child who depended on her to care, love and most of all protect her. She needs to be in jail like the monster she is. Life sentence without parole!!

  2. Poor kids, your mother is the one that should protect you from the crazy world but this turned out they needed to be protected from her. This is a very sad story and i hope the kids are placed with a family member that can love them loke they should be loved. 🥹🥹🥹
