Over the course of the last several days I have read all 127 posts in this thread. As I read the op I was in tears and my stomach was lurching. I mean HOW AWFUL. I just couldn't even imagine how I'd react if this happened to me. But I couldn't post. Something just doesn't sit right with me and I didn't want to be negative towards a mama who was brave in sharing her story. I am typically of the mindset of "If ya don't have something nice to say
But I just can't put it to rest in my head. I go over this senario throughout the day and I'm just baffled. She says she was 6-10 feet from the car. Think about that. If your 6 foot tall husband laid down on the floor and you sat at his feet, and he raised his hands above his head HE'D BE ABLE TO TOUCH THE CAR.
Pull out a tape measure and scroll out 10 feet. Look at it. And now ask yourself, how can 3 people (mom dad and daughter...no, I'm not blaming daughter) NOT SEE someone walk around the car, stand there, open the door, take baby out, stand there again, shut the door and then walk away? I mean, how is that possible that all this could conspire without someone of the 3 saying something. I know that if ds4 saw someone at our car, he'd sure as heck speak up. I just don't get it.
I'm not saying this didn't happen, and I'm not saying op is a terrible mother. But I am saying that her story just doesn't hold water. I think that perhaps out of stress and mis-memory or in order to seem more sympathetic, (I truly hope this isn't the case) the details have been changed. I just think that there is more to this story that meets the eye. And while I want to be supportive of her, I'm also wondering what really happened.
