What the reason for leaving

What the reason for leaving these children alone? She needs to rot. Leaving two toddlers to care for an infant makes no sense at all.

This is so sad, there is no

This is so sad, there is no reason in earth that a MOTHER should leave children of any age alone. Where was she and what was she doing that was so important that her children should be left to take care of each other. Where was the Father of these babies...or may I ask where was the Fathers of these babies. My prayers are with the children, especially the two that are left here to grow up knowing what happened. The prisons are full of children raised like this person is (or is not) raising these children. As for as the mother....there are so many mothers out here now that just don't care about anything but DRAWING a check..God will judge her I shall not.
