Back in July I posted this to raise awareness about a child whose body was found in Boston. No identity – “Baby Doe” is what the news had been calling her. It is sad and heartbreaking and cruel.
Today, she has a name and arrests have been made. Her “mother” is being charged as an accessory. ACCESSORY? THAT’S IT? These people are SCUM. This woman lost custody of two of her other children. She LET THIS HAPPEN. She had to have known and did NOTHING to speak up after the fact.
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? This poor, poor child.
Maybe I am extra emotional and agitated because, earlier today, we terminated our third pregnancy for medical reasons. Which I’ll write about another day. Anyway, I saw the alert come across on TV as I was in recovery, and I just felt so much anger. We want, more than anything, to have a family. A child to love. Unfortunately we have not been able to produce healthy pregnancies, healthy babies. We don’t know why, and we may never know why.
Yet someone like this woman is able to do what we can’t. And what does she do? Her beautiful child is murdered and she hides it. Covers it up. Who knows what else she’s done. Where is the justice? First and foremost for this little girl but also for all the couples that want desperately what this woman had. She’s undeserving of the gift she was given and I feel completely justified in saying that. It makes my blood boil. I hope justice for this little girl comes swiftly.
I know that, technically, these people are innocent until proven guilty. Yada yada yada. It just makes me so bitter. It’s just not fair to the poor girl whose life was cut short. She didn’t deserve this.
