    lOTS OF PRAYERS FOR THESE GRANDPARENTS, I cannot even imagine what they are going through, to know that the court told them the little girl has to visit her Mom and nothing they could do.
    She is flying with the Angels now but so sorry for their lost. What a sorry excuse for a Mother. Way to go Judge, hope u can sleep at night knowing you gave visiting to this Mom. She had bad conduct before, but I guess that did not keep her from seeing her child. Feel for the other grandmother also, what she is going through knowing her daughter killed that little doll.

    Just because a woman can pop out a baby, that doesnt make her "mother material". As a grandparent raising a grandchild that we have legal custody of, it is my worst nightmare to get a phone call during a visit, saying something horrible happened. But our hands are tied, since courts refuse to stop visits or restrict them to supervised only. My heart goes out to Bella's family. I am so terribly sorry for your loss.

    This woman was just shown on TV at her court appearance today. Her fingernails looked like she had a very recent manicure. What kind of thinking goes through this woman's brain? What possible reason could there be for this cruelty???

    Disgusted. Sad. Speechless.
