    I just cant believe some "mothers", this is child abuse at it worst. She is supposed to be a role model for her child. Hope and pray this daughter's eyes will open and she will forgive her mother for allowing her to live such a "boundary and loveless" existence. Doesnt the mother know the story of Eli in the Bible. There is no excuse though for both of them as this is most deplorable. Hope they face a tough sentence so that they will realise crime does not pay. They will never be able to make good on the lives wasted of their users....Thank God they were caught before they could do any more damage. May all the drugdens be closed down and drugdealers repent from their evil way and make restitution. May all the drug addicts be rehabilitated from legal and illegal drugs and be able to live victorious, succesful lives. This is the prayer of my heart...
