This is a really tragic story. My heart is so sad for those two little angels now gone. Did the mother really do what the father is saying??? I think there is much more to this story than we are getting. I ask why is it the children who must always suffer for the parents foolish ways and shortcoming??? TY LW Love & Light

I am sure there is much more to this story. I imagine it is possible the mother did, it may even be possible she witnessed it and couldn't deal with it....? but....why because You trust someone and love them enough to marry them and start a family, if all doesn't work out, You must be trapped in the opposing parents country alone without family support after loosing the only adult who WAS your support there? what would it do to someone in a foreign country? NOT an excuse AT ALL, just a thought
Thank You Lone!

little ones in Gods that these parents could teach a lesson to all parents who are fighting OVER children..Just Don't.....FIGHT....SHARE......your children.....listen to each other...hear..each other....and when you can't face each other.. FACE EACH OTHER ANYWAY...or .find some one who loves your children..and ask for HELP from them.....dont make the children grow up in this war of brokeness....don't fight until someone snaps...or worse....Please Just Share and Love the children...they are a gift to you.

What is wrong with parents anymore? They have problems and they kill their children to spare them pain? How mixed-up can you get? They should have given them to grandparents and tried to work out their problems with some minister or counseling. So sick of hearing how parents kill their own sweet innocent kids.

This story broke my heart - so easy to to look at that photo and see my own two boys at that age. Too often these days children become the victims of their parents' screwed up lives.

Why are parents killing their own children? And how could they? I would die for my children and grandchildren! These were 2 beautiful children and God and His Angels are holding and loving them. I hope and pray the mother gets her just reward! She is a sorry excuse for a mother. No, a mother, a real mother doesn't do this. Noted with tears!!

What a nasty selfish woman. I will NEVER understand the wish to punish your ex so severely that you kill not only yourself but his children. Just kill yourself and make him be a single parent and that will have to be revenge enough, because killing your innocent children is completely evil!

So tragic and sad. My friend threw herself and her baby girl off the top deck of a parking lot. I loved her dearly and possibly even have an understanding of why she did this but I will never be able to forgive that she took the baby with her.

This is truly heartbreaking but so many poor families are living so close to the edge that it does not surprise me that this happened. We need to fight for economic opportunity and mental health services for all familes to stop this from happening.

I'll never be able to wrap my head around why anyone would kill a child.
