Nothing is as devastating to a parent than to bury their child. I hope this family can survive the tragedy.
...the mother of a 21-month-old girl who apparently drowned last month neglected the girl on the day she died.
A spokeswoman for the state Department of Children and Families tells The Boston Globe the agency has substantiated an allegation that Kerry Morton neglected her daughter, Finley Clare Morton, on Oct. 24, shortly before the girl was found unresponsive at the family's Wellesley home.
The child was taken to Newton-Wellesley Hospital where she later died.link
In May 2006, The Globe made an audio slideshow of the Morton family.
