The words...I can't even say how upsetting I know this is. One of my really good friends ( when in high school) We were in our 20's I had my son she had a son a year or two older.....she drown her son.....We still to this day do not understand, she is living in a mental hospital. I guess we just don't really understand how fragile some of our minds are. My thoughts and prayers are with ya'll (I know your children are upset) and with this family ~ Dee
**Just wanted to add as I read posts the person that I knew...had schizophrenia. ...

Ekkk! I read that yesterday and one of the nurses at the hospital were talking about it saying they knew her somehow but I didn't listen that much-it was a little of an off night for me! Hope the kids are ok
Between us Mum's... I think it's hard to understand why she did what she did. Simply because we are of a healthy mind set. Taking our child's life goes against all the natural laws and instincts of motherhood.
This woman clearly is very disturbed for whatever reason. I also believe that when these women do these horrible acts of crime against their children. They are fully aware of what they're doing. They cross that line of human rights. Loosing their own human rights during the process... and should be accountable to merit the punishment.
what is going on with the world today, you got shootings in schools(kids killing kids) and more and more you hear of mothers trying to harm their kids. what in the world is wrong with that woman? and people wonder why i am so protective of my daughter..............gosh that is her on flesh and blood. give those kids a big hug, poor babies.
That is just sick, it turns my stomach. I almost think that they put people on medications to "help them" but more often they hurt them. These depression and mental illness drugs are taking over these people's brains. Children on meds for depression and killing their classmates. Mothers on meds and killing their children. Makes you wonder.
I told my husband when I got home from work...he was in shock. The womans husband is such a good guy...he is Dave's right hand instructor.....he has helped us move a few times and Dave plays pool with him.
I told him to tell him if they needed ANYTHING for those kids...sitting, ride to doc, you name it, I will do it....
She was home schooling the kids as well, so I am not sure what is gonna happen now with getting them back in school.
Apparently, the kids are all in fair condition....I am off tommorrow so I am gonna see what I can do to help!!
Its hard in cases like this to determine what actually made the mother do it. It could have been a serious mental health issue, in which case she needs to recieve psychiactric care. Or it could have been for other reasons. Then she should be hit with the book. I feel for the children and i hope that they are all ok.
All right i just read another story. It mentions that some of the meds found were used to treat schizophrenia and bi-polar. I know somebody who is schizophrenic and takes meds for it. Without them he could be a threat to other people. I have bi-polar so i know what that can do to a person. If she has either disorder than she would benifit more from psychiactric care than from sitting in a jail cell.

What a sad society we now have. Prayers and thoughts are with you. I'm so glad they have you as friends. Hopefully the children will be ok..kids have an amazing ability to come back and beat the odds.Give them a hug from me. And your husband who will be the rock his friend will need to get through this.
