Anyway, back to topic, I don't really feel for the Mum at all. There is so much about this that I don't understand. How the father could not want to see his kids for weeks on end, how the grandmother didn't see something was wrong and push harder, why the landlord didn't report the state of the house to DOCS. So many people with so much opportunity to avoid the horrific outcome.
I feel for those poor babies. Starving to death over weeks and weeks. Not being let out of their cot. Constantly crying. I have a DD nearly the same age and I just can't comprehend the treatment those poor babies got at all. It wasn't like she snapped. That I may have sympathy for. But to neglect and starve your kids for a long time and cause their death? Yeah, I'm struggling to find any sympathy for either parent.
I don't know if mum had depression or a mental illness. Some report say yes, some say no. Either way, those babies didn't have to die. Her 11yo daughter shouldn't have had to have found them. The whole situation is just so extremely sad.
