    Such a sad story. Hopefully this little baby will go on to get the love that he deserves from his father and family! I don’t understand how this happens, at what point does a parent do this? Is this something that is thought about prior? I have 3 kids aged 14, 8 and 4. Trust me they drive me crazy…..but never would I want to hurt them! Especially by attacking them with a kitchen knife. Why your child? Hurt yourself if that’s the way you want to end your life but let the innocent children alone!
