Child Abuse Story From Shirley:

I have a little girl that is 13 months old. Her daddy tried to drown her in a bathtub. She was only 10 weeks old when he done this to her. The baby was 7 months old when she was almost starved by the mother. When I got her, she only weighed 9 lb. 11oz. Both parents await trial dates.

The baby still suffers for what they have done to her. I have had her for 6 months now. She is doing well for what she has went through. I hope some day she can be mine. I never want her to go through that again. As long as I have her, I know she is safe. Please all pray they don't give her back to either one of them.
