Baby Lisa: Family member’s perspective why prayer vigils stopped
Ashley provides insight into why Deborah and Jeremy asked their community members to stop holding the vigils outside their home. She begins by saying, “The focus had totally shifted and it just wasn't about Lisa anymore.”
Lisa’s aunt Ashley wrote in an email, “Some of those involved in the prayer vigils created unnecessary drama.” She said the vigils became “gossip-fests” and meetings for case discussion instead of gathering to actually pray for and focus on Baby Lisa.
“Some of those involved habitually talked about what other people were supposedly doing and saying and creating a rumor mill,” Ashley said. “A lot of unnecessary stress and drama started to surround the vigils. People were always talking about other people behind their backs and someone was always mad at somebody else for something.”
Ashley said that Jeremy and Deborah were being “incessantly approached” with people knocking on their front door numerous times a day. She said that every time they stepped outside people would surround them and try talking to them for extended periods of time.
“I understand the desire to want to talk to them, but being at someone's house 12 out of 24 hours in a day and knocking on their door and talking to them literally every single time they step foot outside their home is a bit extreme,” she said.

OPA-LOCKA — Children are priceless.
But for one Miami mother, $7,000 for an infant seemed like a fair trade.
Kenia Quiala Bosque, 30, stands accused of arranging to sell her 8-month-old son, authorities said. She was arrested on Sunday at her home and charged with adoption violation.
On Saturday, officials received a tip that Bosque had arranged to meet a Monroe County man in Miami for the purpose of selling her child, according to The Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — A man is being held in jail after witnesses reported that he kicked his baby down the street while his child was in a stroller, police said.
Those who were passing by said it was the beginning of rush hour traffic when they saw a man kicking an 8-month-old girl while she sad in a stroller. One of them called 911.
Sheridan told dispatchers "I just want to jump out of this car and kill that dude. Oh my gosh, I can't stand to watch this."
Sheridan used her cellphone to capture video of the man in hopes of providing proof of the abuse.
"I was just sick to my stomach. I still am. I just can't believe people do that to their kids," Sheridan said.
Police said witnesses stopped the man; however, they said the child was suffering from more than just being kicked.
Rollins said, "Her little fingers were like ice and her nose was red. Her lips were red and she was freezing. She was not properly dress and she had nothing on her hands, face and head and no jacket."

OIO I'm NOT mad at you - but at the situation. Thank you for pointing this out. I agree in part but I don't see any reason why those parents can get their fat backsides up off the couch and walk out there and BE PARENTS and hold that VIGIL FOR THEIR BABY GIRL! WITH THEIR TWO BOYS HAND IN HAND! It's only been TWO FREAKIN MONTHS!

There is one theory out there on the internet about Lisa being sold for adoption. This is not my theory, but considering parents do this I thought I would post it.
Lisa was sold to someone for a black market adoption and the kidnapping story was staged as the coverup. Once the dust has settled the "anonymous benefactor" will donate the "reward" money to the parents to help them "move on" with their lives, i.e. new home. And that is how the parents will be paid for selling their child.
Now I don't think this is the case at all. But if you look at it from a conspiracy stand point, it could be why the donations page was setup, to set the stage for the "donation" to the family.
Personally I think these people are wasting their time, and Edith is starting to look like an eccentric busy-body. As far as I can tell, she's not an established or long-term friend of the family. Is she? Does anyone know? I think she just started her efforts independently. But I could be wrong about that.
To show her dedication, she has written "Bring Baby Lisa Home" on her blue Mustang in painted lettering.
Although it is admirable that one woman dedicates herself to finding missing children, it seems slightly odd that this woman is more determined to find answers than Lisa Irwin's own mother, Deborah Bradley. Bradley has not been out searching for Lisa and she shut down the vigils on the family's front lawn. The mystery is not what happened to Lisa these days; it is why Deborah is so hesitant to find her own daughter.
