The media should keep out of these stories because this child has to live with it growing up. Especially if he gets a loving family who adopts/fosters him.

    I hope this mum receives the he'll she obviously needs. As does the baby.
    But if thats the case then shouldnt all cases not be reported? What about rapes, are the perpetrators 'poor guys'? 'They must have mental illnesses'?.

    Why is it any less sick murdering an 11 month old then murdering a 11 year old? This stance on 'poor mum' really grinds my gears.

    No situation negates murder.

    ETA: I do realise Azaria Chamberlain was a girl. Her name is in reference to "associated with one of the most infamous child death cases in Australian history." Which was in the news article. Azariah is unisex and if we're talking biblical, it's masculine.
    But didn't it say child murder??? Would you call Azaria chamberlain murdered by the dingo?

    Thinking about it more I hope it's not Daniel thinking about the biblical story associated with the name (thrown down the den)

    I'm not going to comment on the mother as I have no idea what the back story that led her to this is. I can only imagine she must of been in a pretty bad place to do such a thing. My thoughts and prayers are with the poor little baby. I'm so glad it survived.

    The young Samoan woman who dumped her baby in a drain is a loving auntie who adores babies - and 'has a five-year-old son living in New Zealand'

    She is the woman accused of dumping her day-old baby down a drain and leaving him to die.

    But the 30-year-old is also a loving auntie who adores children and appears entirely devoted to her family in Australia and Samoa, Daily Mail Australia can reveal.

    One of her social media accounts - filled with pictures of babies and young relatives - suggests that she became increasingly clucky as her pregnancy progressed.

    And the woman, the daughter of a Seventh Day Adventist pastor, appears to have another son - a five-year-old who lives in New Zealand.

    Postings on social media in the days after she dumped her son, but before the baby was found and alleged crime was detected, show her posing and looking pretty in a dress but also experiencing post-natal tiredness.

    A family friend has told Daily Mail Australia that the young woman - who goes by an anglicised nickname and works in western Sydney - 'loves children and is very good with children'.

    Unfortunately the article does not surprise me. The article sounds a bit 'unsure' about the 5 year old kid in NZ though. I'm surprised this was written unless the journalist was sure. It's rather inflammatory if it is not true (eg if it is true I would unleash new criticism on the mother).

    Will be extremely interesting if it is true. I imagine we will eventually hear as new details surface.

    I wouldn't be surprised either. The article about mums killing their newborns mentioned that it's second and subsequent children that are the more at risk.
