Mom Arrested For Kids Traveling In Back Of U-Haul
I just saw this story on our local news. The mom and eight or nine children were discovered at a gas station a few miles from my house. It's sad, tragic, and extremely maddening all at same time. What was that mother thinking? I can only imagine the difficult circumstances in her life that would make her feel so desperate that she had to do something like this, but she put all the lives of her kids in danger. I hope they will be safe now, but I can't help but wonder what will happen will to children if/when the mom goes to jail. Will anyone be willing to take in all eight siblings or will they be put into the foster care system and separated? So sad.
