    Only 10,000 it should be high than that, something ain’t right, she needs more than reb, that baby having it in its body, Praying for this baby!!!

  2. I wish people like this would care more about their unborn children than themselves! Or ask for help!

  3. have a baby and get more welfare.

  4. Erin Glenn Miriam Savage she looks about your age you might know of her

  5. Nope I don’t know her and he is a lot younger than me

  6. The fact that she had access to Fentanyl and morphine scares me. I guarantee she didn’t have a prescription for those and some doctors write that stuff like candy. That mama needs serious help and that baby is going to suffer because of the mothers bad choices. So sad…
