I certainly hope all the newbies are here because they truly care, and not because of morbid curiosity, but there are probably some of both.
I'm no newbie, and I certainly DO care...I'm getting tired of explaining to people at work why my lower legs are all cut up and bug-bitten (I was stupid enough to go out searching for Nevaeh wearing SHORTS). I tell them and they all go "ahhh, that's so sad". Of course it is! Particularly if you have a child the same age as Nevaeh. I have felt sick about it since it happened. I've made some posts about her mom before, but now I just feel she may be guilty of not watching Nevaeh, and of exposing her to bad people, both of which are certainly horrendous, but she had nothing to do with Nevaeh's murder. I'm sure she is grieving in her own way, and no doubt her grief is compounded by guilt. It must be hell to go through.
