It sadly seems like more and more sickos like this are coming out of the woodwork these days. I look forward to the justice system giving her what she deserves, although she deserves a lot worse than they can legally do.

I just can't understand why someone would do something like that.

With crimes as heinous as THIS, I prefer to believe insanity is the cause.  For a trained professional to target babies, over and over, would take a level of evil that is unimaginable to me. :(

Poor little innocent babies! How on earth can a human be that evil and cruel? I suspect that there is an underlying story here. Either she has lost one or more infants of her own, or found out she can't have babies. Maybe something happened to send her into a permanent state of evil. I don't know and don't want to, because nothing could excuse this vicious insanity.
