What Drives A Mother to Kill?

When you are pregnant you develop a bond with the baby. That bond strengthens when you feel the baby move for the first time, when you hear the heart beat and it definitely occurs when you go for your sonogram and you see your baby. It's such an amazing feeling. Unfortunately, this is not the case for every woman. Some women may find it difficult to bond with her unborn child.

So how does someone carry a baby for months, give birth, bring the baby home and then kill the baby? Have you been following the story about Megan Huntsman the 39-year-old woman who was arrested in Utah for killing at least six of her seven babies; one baby was born stillborn. She then stuffed their innocent lifeless bodies into individual boxes and packed them away in the garage. How can she look at herself in the mirror knowing what she has done? The news has labeled her a baby serial killer.

Baby serial killers are very rare. However, it appears that she is not the first woman who has been identified as an infanticide serial killer. Dominique Cottrez, a woman from Villers-au-Tertre, France, confessed to suffocating eight of her babies as newborns. Celene Lesage, another French woman who murdered six infants and hid them in a cellar. Marybeth Tinning was arrested for smothering her 4-month-old daughter. She was also suspected in the deaths of her eight other children. Unfortunately, she was never convicted for those deaths. Waneta Hoyt a woman from upstate New York murdered five of her children. She was sentenced to life, but died in prison while serving her time.

How could these women commit such a heinous act, let alone six or more additional times? Are there more babies we don't know about? Another question is WHY? The police have stated they think they know what Megan's motive was, but they are not going to disclose that information to the public. The bigger question is how come no one noticed these babies were never around or with their mother? Did they have an accomplice? Do these women have a history of mental illness? Were they suffering with postpartum depression? 

This could occur if the woman was diagnosed with postpartum depression or other mental illnesses. However that does not make it okay. I believe Megan, Dominique, Celene, Marybeth and the other women who killed their babies are cold, cruel and heartless. There are so many women who are not able to conceive (for whatever reason). I'm sure it would not have been difficult to find a few candidates. I don't know what I would do without my girls. They mean everything to me. They are my life; my reason for living. I don't know if I could live without them. I don't know what I would do without them. 

I believe any mother who kills their child(ren) are selfish. They are not thinking about the child(ren), but are only concerned with their feelings whether it's anger, heartache or pain.  In their mind, killing the child(ren), they are killing or ridding themselves of what is causing them pain.   When in reality it has nothing to do with the child,  but everything to do with what is going on with them mentally and emotionally. Please ladies if you have horrible thoughts about harming your child(ren) or yourself, please seek help.

Why do you think these mothers killed their babies?

(You Brought Out) The Worst In Me

Having a mate or significant other can be delightful. You support one another, set goals and encourage one another to do better in all areas of your life. However, the relationship can be dreadful if it is with the wrong individual. 

Sometimes someone else's situation reminds of something I have gone through and sometimes I place myself in their shoes to see things from their perspective. The R&B singer Tyrese has a song called "Best of Me", I decided to write my version titled "(You Brought Out)The Worst In Me".

What a task it was to be loved by you
Suppose to be my best friend, but that was not true
You said everything you could to break me down
But did whatever it took to keep me around baby

It felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Because of your conditional love baby that's why
You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

You tried to ruin my life, every day and every night boy I cried
There were times when I felt unsure and my judgment was obscured
and with you by my side I was an unhappy girl Hey yeah

It felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Because of your conditional love baby that's why
You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

I want you to know it's not the end of my world, I did all I could
I did my best as your girl
So I stand up and shout to the world
He's the worst, He's the worst

So I moved on with my life and I'm doing fine I look to the sky it was God, God
Cause he gave peace of mind, mind
God is the best,  God is the best but

You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose you boy

You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me
                                                         

Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. Never let anyone take away your happiness. YOU determine how someone will treat you. People will only do to you what you allow. When you are going through something,  Push Until Something Happens (PRAY) and ask God for guidance. He will always be there and he will see you through.

I hope this helps someone!!!!
