*When people choose to use drugs, that’s their business. But when children become the victims of the carelessness that can accompany this behavior, it becomes ours. And as a parent writing this story, I am beyond offended; not to mention mad as hell at the mother who was so high on drugs that she got careless and rolled over on her 7-month-old little girl, who died a week later as a result.
According to KABC, little Olaia Marie Mejia died at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia this past Friday morning. Her mother, 30-year-old Lisa Scalia, has been arrested and charged with child endangerment and drug possession, and will most likely face additional charges.
Scalia has bail set remains in jail on a $100,000 bail.
I swear, we have GOT to do better, humans.
