As a mother myself, I can't imagine any other mother not wanting to be the absolute best for their child.... So i feel horribly for both the mother
and the baby.
Clearly her addiction to getting high has taken priority over her child, and so while it breaks my heart to say it, I agree with you when you say you
hope she loses custody.
That baby, and every baby for that matter, deserves better.
While I know the odds aren't in her favor, I hope the mother gets the help she clearly needs, and recovers so that one day she can have a healthy
relationship with her baby, and be the role model every child needs in a mother.

Wow that was intense. I was an opiate addict for many years. But have been clean and sober for 3 years this june. I dont even drink.
Life is to beautiful to waste like that. Once i realized that, i never looked back.
she looks like she is nodding out yet having body seizures at the same time. The swaying of the head reminds me of a heroin addict. But i never seen
someone perform a tap dancing show while nodding out. Maybe she injected to big of a speed ball?
No parent should be out of control on drugs while caring for their children. Even if she didn't have any children, those drugs do NOT look like fun.
It appears that whatever she took was such a bad idea that just about any street drug would have been a better idea.
Disgusting. Could have been a scene from Breaking Bad.....
I have said before, and will say again, there are unfit parents in this world.
I'm glad that in this case the baby was removed. Foster care and CPS are not great, but that baby needs a better caregiver.
From the time I decided to try to get pregnant, I did not smoke or drink. Was completely sober - when you become a parent, the CHILD is the main
I just don't get what possesses someone to even start taking hard drugs.
When does someone say, "Gee, snorting coke sounds like a good idea!" or "Hey, let's go smoke some rocks. That would be fun!"?
With all the crack zombies and toothless meth heads I've seen growing up, at no point did I ever think to myself that taking drugs would be cool, fun,
or worth trying. I mean you have to be a complete idiot to not see what it does to you.
I wish people would make a conscious choice, Hey I am going to live a # life and do gutter drugs, therefor I shall refrain from having children, but
no, they want someone to love them, so they they think I'll have a baby, it'll love me, and it'll force me to get my # together.
Disgusting, I hope she wants the change, if not, expected.
Hopefully the child and her get the help they need for a better life. Spice is horrible drug. And no I'm not saying that just because I support
marijuana and feel if it was legalized people wouldn't put this trash in their bodies instead because it's readily available/legal. Nor am I saying
it's the only blame, the parent needs help as well. Look into this synthetic drug, it is really harmful.
