Fr. Steve was always a wonderful person. God bless him and the work he is doing for the church.

It's always the children who suffer. The baby was not mauled. He died of a puncture wound to the head. The bite probably hit an artery. Such a sad story. Hopefully this woman will not have any more children. Looks like she can barely provide for herself.

I agree. They can afford five dogs but no crib? That should have been taken care of before. She had nine months to prepare. Poor little boy. God bless his beautiful soul.

What a beautiful story. There's never a reason not to pray. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations to another Youngstown success story. With all the tragedies occurring in Youngstown it's nice to see something good happen.

I said once she is out of a successful rehab program. The good ones are up to one year long. Then it's a lifetime of meetings. Many people who are drug addicts beat the addiction but it's a long road. Some go on to be very successful parents . I hope this is the case. The mother has a long road to hoe before her children can be returned if at all.

Before her children are returned she needs rehab. Then be in a program the rest of her life with a sponsor. If you give her the children right back it will happen again. She needs to get and stay clean.

I bet they eventually reunite the kids with the mom and baby daddy. This is how social services works. The kids end up totally dysfunctional. Happens more often than not nowadays.

Ha ha! Fatty Arbuckle was actually innocent. This guy is guilty as sin. Feed him granola and water only. Maybe he'll lose those last 200 pounds that are usually so tough.

This is what I was seeing 20 years ago. It's nothing new only under reported. Disgusting. Many kids today don't have a chance. These parents need thrown in prison for negligence. I only hope that some social worker doesn't make the usual mistake and reunite. I've see children die after going back to the same situation.
