... To go away to work, and come home and find out someone threw your not-quite two-year old baby off a bridge.<br><br><a href="http://starbulletin.com/2008/01/18/news/story01.html" target="_blank">http://starbulletin.com/2008/01/18/news/story01.html</a><br><br>
How sick do you have to be to do that?<br>
I feel so bad for that mother.<br><br>
My husband told me this while we passed a news crew last night at a freeway bridge. He told me, "That's why I was so glad to come home to you guys tonight. I heard it on the radio, I couldn't imagine if someone stole my baby and threw Cora off a bridge. I don't understand."<br><br>
yeah... I don't get it, either. Poor kid, and that poor mom.

And what I don't get is that in one article, the mother says she would never leave her son alone with the accused (due to his behaviour) but in another article, police say that he occasionally baby sat for her.<br><br>
And<br><br>
Apparently, the son was found wandering the street and picked up by policec and taken back home after the boyfriend was outsided fiddling with his car, so the boyfriend put the toddler in the house. When he weent to take the mother to appointments, it looks as though he failed to wake up the mothers father, so, the toddler was left alone, without anyone looking after him because the person supposed to be looking after him was asleep when the toddler went missing.<br><br>
Seems to me, this tragedy was totally preventable.

I think its incredibly hurtful to post the mothers picture. And completely unthinkable the way the media handled it. Also think of all the other people affected by it. I can't imagine what the driver is thinking knowing they accidently ran over the child.

I just inadvertently watched video of her initial reaction upon finding out, storming into her apartment and crying, "why weren't you watching him?!?"<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"><br>
