Did they find her?

What a horrible Christmas for the grandparents of Caylee Anthony if indeed the remains they have found today are that of little Caylee. It's horrifying that a mother could do what Casey Anthony is accused of. I couldn't imagine it. I've raised the girl and boy all alone for their entire lives, without help from others and put my life on hold, because they didn't ask to be born, they didn't ask to have no father in their lives..and I love them enough to make sacrifices, it's just what one does or so I thought..

Casey complained more than once about not being able to do anything because of her daughter, yet, her parents took care of that little girl more than she herself did. What I would've given to get a break here and there, especially when I had my nervous breakdown, when the boy was 1 and the girl was 6. Even during that period where I was left alone to raise both of them in the midst of a nervous breakdown, the thought of ever hurting either of them, never entered my mind. Hurting myself? Well, yes if I am honest..but them? Never, ever, ever.

My heart goes out to the grandparents. It's too bad they've taken the death penalty off the table for mom Casey. Poor little baby, it's almost too much to bear.

I'm pretty sure the grandparents will stand by their daughter, claiming that someone other than their daughter killed their granddaughter. Complete denial. So very sad.

I had not seen an ounce of news today and my heart just broke and I am in tears. I asked by husband who told me all about it. How can a mother do that to her child and what is this world coming to?

I guess we all knew all along this was not going to have a happy ending, it's just hearing it after seeing her sweet little face on TV so much that breaks my heart into a million tiny pieces. Poor poor baby.

Unfortunately, it's not something new to us, mothers killing their children... though I had just a sliver of hope that this time it would be different. I think I knew deep down that it wouldn't.

It's all so very sad. I read so many blogs of women who are trying to get pregnant, who all I am sure would have adopted that child and others that mothers don't seem to want. THAT'S what doesn't make sense to me..

I cried too. They are putting a forensics priority on it right now, though it seems they are all resigned to the fact that it is her. :(

When this happens, it is incredibly sad. I cannot wrap my mind around the will it takes for someone to kill their child. So very sad.
