    There are no words that come to me right now. I pray this is NOT true and there is some other explanation but my gut tells me different. Praying for all involved.

    What a beast!!!

    In this enlightened era, do folks not realize that babies and young children cry - sometimes for hours at a time???

    Praying the child does well, and praying they throw the book at this beast.

    God bless.
