Three separate stories regarding parents and their children over the last few days certainly show the extremes of parenthood.
The latest comes from Milwaukee, where someone abandoned a two-year-old girl at a McDonald's on Sunday afternoon. Police are having a difficult time with the case because the girl doesn't talk.
In Minneapolis, a newborn baby tossed in a snow bank is reported in satisfactory condition at a hospital today. Police say the 18-day-old infant was thrown into the snow by her mother after she fought with a man Saturday morning. Luckily, a person getting off a bus saw the baby before it froze.
This seems like a good time to provide a link on how to be a foster parent.
In Louisiana, Jalisa Granger, 21, died over the weekend when a tornado sent a tree crashing through her home's roof. She died protecting her 15-month-old son. He's OK.
I think there is a typo on the link for the Louisana story. I believe it should be this: http://www.kplctv.com/Global/story.asp?S=14198143
The story about the little girl in the snowbank seems a lot deeper than what is being reported. There was a man and woman involved. The man is being charged with domestic assult. If I was getting beat up, I too may toss my kid out of the way. I think there is more to the story than what is being told.
Thanks for bringing that up, Kassie. I was wondering about that myself.
