    How does a woman, carrying a 30 lb. child, get away, on foot, from a supervised visit?? Did no one chase her?? This is a disgrace…

      YES, YES, EXACTLY!! Another thing: On the news they said she put the baby in a stroller and just walked out of the place. Did she come into the place with a stroller (which should have been a give away that she was going to take the child), or did she commandeer one that was already there? In any case, I stick by my statement that there was no supervision.

    So much for SUPERVISED visitation. Whoever was in charge of SUPERVISING this visit should be FIRED!! And, if any harm comes to the child, they should be charged with that as well.
