I really have mixed feelings about this story…On one hand I understand a mother trying to do everything she can to get her family out of a situation I’m sure no one ever want’s to be in…But, on the other hand you can’t put your children in a dangerous situation to better their lives, it kind of defeats the purpose….If haven’t heard about this story it’s quite interesting.
Shanesha Taylor. The Scottsdale, Ariz. native and 35-year-old homeless mother of two was arrested after she left her 2-year-old and six-month-old sons in a hot SUV that was locked with the windows cracked as she went for a job interview at an insurance company. According to the Herald Sun, a passerby heard Taylor’s youngest child crying and called police. When they arrived, Taylor returned to her car 45 minutes after police got to the scene, and when police arrested her, the two boys were reportedly “crying and sweating profusely.” Taylor told police that she was homeless and needed the work, and because she couldn’t find someone to watch her kids, she had to take them with her. This event occurred on March 20. Well, those in support of Taylor have actually set up a fundraising campaign on to help raise money for Taylor and her kids, who are in the custody of Child Protective Services at this time as she awaits charges. The goal was only $9,000, which according to the person who set up the fundraising campaign, Amanda Bishop, would be put into an account for her family. However, the fundraiser has brought in a whopping $27,000 (at the time of this post, $27,827). check out the fundraising page on YouCaring and get more details on where the money is going and what other ways you can help Taylor.

    This is just how stupid and ignorant people are who is thinking and looking out for the children?
    Why didn’t she take her kid to the interview?i did and got the job where is my help I am a poor woman too with seven children and up to this date I never left my kids in a hot car ….. If she did this supposedly out of desperation imagine what more has she done or will do when all of this is said and done ?where are her children going to end up in a morgue ? And then all those people tht helped her think? This is just B.S
