    Don’t the parents know where they left their child?
    This makes me sick. So many people who want to have children and can’t and scum like this pops them out and abuses them. A child is a gift and should be treated like the most precious thing ever.

    It would be great if the article said where the child was found (other than the city), who’s house the child was at, whether he was alone or with someone, why the parents were in Winston-Salem…just more info please! Even if it’s a follow up story, sum up the rest of it!
