Child Abuse Story About a Child Named Adrianna

by Jennifer
(Gaffney, South Carolina, USA)

Adrianna is almost two. She can't walk and she is just now starting to hold her head up. My preacher and his wife are her foster parents. Her mom wouldn't feed her and she would sometimes go two days wearing the same diaper. When my preacher and his wife got her she was 4 months old. They diagnosed her with malnutrition because her mom wasn't giving her what she needed and her heart was failing. Just a couple months ago they diagnosed her legally blind. She's not even two years old yet and she can't even crawl or walk.

Amazing that Adrianna survived...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Adrianna is a little miracle. How very lucky she was to survive, and then be placed in what I sincerely hope are the loving, nurturing and protective arms of this preacher and his wife. I do hope the mother will face charges for the crimes she committed against this helpless little baby.

Thank you for sharing this story with my visitors and me, Jennifer.

God's Little Miracle!
by: Linda

What a little miracle. My heart goes out to this little child. I'm so glad she is with loving people who will love her. An alley cat makes a better mother than some women. I hope her mother gets what she deserves, which is prison. It makes me so angry when I read about such cruelty to little babies.I can't say anymore.I have to go pray for this little precious, child.
