There are clearly circumstances that are sometimes out of your control.
Then there's problems that you create early on and refuse to straighten out your situation. Alicia Myles fits into this unfortunate slot.
Alicia, 25 years old has basically turned herself into a sperm receiver. It may sound harsh but it is the bottom line. Until a few days ago, she was the mother of three and expecting another child within a month.
All that changed on January 24th,2012, at 3:00am, on an early, cold, winter morning.
There are two sides to this horrible ending.
One source says Myles' 3 year old daughter started the fire. Another source says a pizza box caught fire.
Either way it didn't end well for two children.
For whatever reason, Miss Myles had been under investigation by the Department of Children and Family services in the past. There were issues with two former boyfriends and there was evidence of child neglect in 2006 and 2008.
If this baby making broad had all these issues, the first question should be - why keep bringing kids into the world that obviously you don't have the mental capacity and/or funds to handle?
Second question, if the state concluded that she was an unfit parent, why were the kids still in her care? Any 6 and 3 year old that is allowed to make snacks unsupervised in the kitchen at 3am with Mom's blessing shows some lack of supervision.
Foster care is a mess, DCFS is a mess, and to top it off Myles is fucked up. Where was her responsibility to keeping those kids safe? Those kids were basically on their own.
The system and the mother failed those kids horribly!
Those babies never had a chance.
They caught hell everyday just being around Myles.
Those kids deserved better!
So, what happens now? Life goes on.
Myles i'm sure will give birth to more kids. Business as usual.
