    Yes, there are some mothers out here that will harm their babies. As one post stated, Susan Smith, the lady who put her child in the microwave, the lady that killed her five kids and let's not forget the lady who drown all her kids. Many mothers put their children in bags/trash cans to be found by others.

    Yes, I just pray the mother will use wisdom and NOT harm the baby and return the child to safety and seek help herself. I'm sure she wants to see the child, but go about it correctly.

    I seriously doubt if a mother will hurt her own child, my two cents.

    Did you ever hear of Susan Smith? yes unfortunatly there are some mothers out there that would hurt her children. lets all pray she will be safe.

    "I seriously doubt if a mother will hurt her own child, my two cents."

    Maybe she wouldn't intentionally hurt her child, but if she is a neglectful mom, drug addict or has other issues, the child could be in danger in other ways. My two cents too. ;-)

    I agree with all the posts, I hope the baby is found soon and safe. Praying the mother will not harm the child and turn herself in.

    "frequent the area"...LOL. I wonder what that means. I hope the child turns up safe. Too bad we can't pick our parents. Poor baby.

    Hopefully they will find her soon and she will be safe and sound.

    Don't know all the details but I hope they find the mother and daughter soon. The mother needs to turn herself in. No use in getting in deeper trouble than she is already in. Pray for her and the child.

    She's such a beautiful baby and I really hope that she's found safe and sound.
