Brittany Hill, a 26-year-old Dallas mom put a classified ad in a newspaper. This is where I start scratching my head. Craigslist or Backpage I could see come crazy ad on, but a newspaper? Maybe ads are just that automated now that no one looks at them?
Brittany was asking $4000 for her 4-month-old boy. When the potential buyer got cold feet, he or she contacted the Dallas Police. Brittany was arrested and faces a charge of child abandonment.
NBCDFW spoke to several of Brittany’s neighbors. A statement made by one of them really spoke to me.
Neighbors said they wished the mother would have made a cry for help.
If you are in any type of situation where there could be any possible harm by yourself or someone else and a baby (or child) is involved, ask for help. I know this may seem like an over-simplified statement, but there are people who are willing to help. It kills me to see situations as such go down like this especially so close to my home.
Praying for this baby and this mom.
