My best friends daughter who is a drug addict and a thief. Her mother has put her in program after program and she still goes back to shooting heroin, or popping pills or anything else she can do to get her jollies off.
Miss X (we will call the addicted this) has a two year old son whom was born addicted to Herion. Miss X's mom has full custody of him (he is two years old) and is a wonderful grandmother. This little boy has overcome many obsticals thanks to his grandmother and all her hard work.
Now Miss X just had another baby two weeks ago. This baby, when they did the toxx screen had Morphine, Crystal Meth, Heroin, Oxycontin, and two other high level prescription drugs in its system. Its another little boy. This baby is in so much pain and is suffering so bad you cannot even hold it. They are using 4 times the normal amount of morphine to try and keep the baby comfortable and they have no clue if it will make it past 30 days old, and if it does they are anticipating severe issues mentally and physically. The doctors said that this baby is 10 times worse than the two year old was when born.
Now until two days ago, Miss X had visitation privileges with her first born allowing her to see him from 12:00 to 4:00 three days a week, where she could be unsupervised and take him to the park or so on.
She now has no visitation rights to either children and her mother has full custody of both kids. When Miss X brought the two year old back from a play date at the park grandma took the car seat and noticed that there had been juice spilled in it and removed the cover to wash it... only to find dirty needles stuck under the padding in the car seat...
The next day she went down and petitioned the court.
Also after Miss X was sent home from the hospital (the baby will be spending at least a month there if it makes it) she has returned three times to see the baby. Each time she has been higher than a kite, walking aimless around the hospital, found by a nurse.
I know how i feel on this subject... I believe that she needs to be put in jail for abuse, neglect whatever they can get her on and if the baby dies, she needs to be charged with murder... on top of that I believe that she should be made to have a Tubal Ligation and not be allowed to have anymore children.
What do you think? I am going to have a hard enough time looking at this girl, let alone not kicking her teeth out because of what she has done to this little boy and its a small town, im gonna run into her.
