    I am also like Proudofmysoldier, the women is also my friend. I have done research on this very fact to try to bring her some comfort. Did you know that 47 children were killed last year the same way and that is up from 41 the previous year. Some mothers can not take the grief and the comments that people make and take their own lives. Please be kind to this women she is an amazing mom who made a mistake. please I ask you all to be gentle on her.

    OH also please do not judge my friend. You have not heard what has completely happened. It does not matter if a child is inside the house when you go to leave, children can still open doors and run out faster then anything. So please do not judge her.

    I've got little mistakes I made playing baseball in high school that still aggrevate me...I can't begin to imagine how this poor mother will live with this. I am so very sorry for her. May God give her comfort in some way.

    Horrible story. God bless that poor mom, I can only imagine what she must be going through right now. I just can't stand thinking about it any more...

    While I agree that this could have been avoided,by looking and looking again or having another person take hold of the child until vehicle has made clearance.I feel for the family as it wa sa mistake of the highest grade.I think I would want to just die,if this had of happened to me.This mother's apin will last her a lifetime even if it had been her to killed the baby.That lifetime of pain,I hope will not destroy this mother.She is really going to need more suport than what her friends/family/or church is experienced enough to give her.My heart aches for her.
