    Tragic indeed! This must be what they mean by being between a rock and a hard place. I hope someone adopts the baby.
    It is desperation that caused this action and It cannot be easy for the lady having the additional task of baby-care while still on a life-long duty of caring for her mentally challenged daughter who gave birth to the child.

    It is a real pity!
