Now it is a two year old boy, Sky Metalwala. You can read it all Here
It is getting just too heart breaking to write about these stories now. Sometimes I would rather not tune into the news but we must keep plugging away to bring these sad sad cases to the public.
I would like to see a law enacted and that women and men would have to get a license to become parents. First they would have to go through extensive training to learn what is involved in parenthood. They also would have to pass a mental evaluation and have it reassessed every five years. There has to be an answer somewhere to curb the needless suffering that some children have to endure. How many missing and presumed dead children do we have now? How many will be added tomorrow and the next day and the next?
Here are a couple comments made by Vicky pert to this case and will help familarize you with what has taken place etc. [I transferred them from the Baby Lisa Irwin post]
Snoopy – apparently she was not out of gas after all. Not only that, why in the devil would you take one child with you and leave the other behind in an unlocked car? Why not stay in the car and wait for help? Additionally, it seems there is a child custody issue as well, and a history of violence of some sort in the family, along with both parents charged in the past with leaving an infant unattended in a car in the middle of winter.
So many children victimized by those who are supposed to protect and care for them. This latest case sounds like they should be looking for a deceased child. By the look of things these children were surrounded by dysfunction for quite some time. Apparently the four year old has been unable to shed any light on what happened. Unfortunately, at her stage of development, it will be difficult to establish any type of timeline from her since most children at that age have not developed a strong sence of time. Especially if the parents have not spent much time working with them on that concept. It sounds to me as though most of these children’s lives at this point has been filled with exposure to battling parents and a parental tug of war. Not to mention an alleged mentally Ill parent. Geesh. We need to stop failing our children!
