Wow. Mother of the year award, right here....Sounds like a horrible place for a kid. Heroin and a would be murderer.

that "would-be" murder is my family. all y'all know it what y'all hear online. educate yourself not everything you see on the net is true.

Let her eat no big loss

and not only was heroin present; she tried to eat it.

Is it too much to think Social Services has the child and she will never regain custody?

I hope both bonds are secured.
