    It’s not even as if she left the child for something important. Leave your child out in the cold while you’re visiting your boyfriend? Lady, you don’t even deserved to have a child!

    Why is the boyfriend more important….. that poor child could of died, or kidnapped, raped, Thank you Jesus a woman was brave enough to break into the car and get the child, the mother deserves to lose all rights, she does not need a child, she could of took the child into the apartment, unless she was doing drugs or what not, she could of hired a babysitter, she is sick, and does not deserve a bond, dumb#$% woman

    People easily judge others, We have the right to speak our opinion it is our given right, God is the main judge. but, that woman still had no right to leave her child in a cold car to visit a boyfriend, that child could of been taken inside with her, or left with a babysitter. even if it wasn’t cold, she still had no right to leave the child inside that car. NO man or woman is worth losing a child over. she needs parenting classes, and self esteem classes. maybe then she can get her child back, give it 6 months to a year
