I saw this item posted over on Dooce and just spent the last 15 minutes or so sitting at my computer crying.
After you read the story, you'll understand.
The story is from the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times and is a horrible tale of child abuse and neglect.
Read it and you will understand why I was crying. You will not however be able to understand how a mother could do that to her own child.
I just wonder why people like that are given the gift of children. It makes no sense.
