~Madeleine McCann~





I don't know what to say here really. We all feel the same about the future of this little girl, missing for 17 days now. As everyone else, I hope she's found safe and well and returned to her parents very soon. That would be amazing!!

I apologise if the following offends anyone as I KNOW how insensitive it seems to the parents of this child, but I have to say it.

Even though I can't stop thinking about the torture the parents must be going through, I can't help but wonder why the HELL they went out and left the door to their holiday apartment OPEN, leaving 3 small children in bed!

I'm not trying to say that they asked for this to happen, but c'mon, really, which parent in their right mind would go out drinking and leave their 3 small children in an apartment room which is unlocked, and abroad?! I'm completely baffled!

WHEN Madeleine returns to them, they might want to consider staying at home with their kids, OR at least locking the bloody door!

this is so freakin sad...  I don't think what you say is bad... it's true and no doubt thought by others.  I just hope she comes home safe and sound.
love ya Jack!  :)~

When I read about this and the way she disappeared, I realized alot had to do with cultural habits she may've picked up.  Then I realized with horror just how many parents do the very same thing, fully expecting their children to care for themselves.  This is the worst form of abuse, when you put your child in harm's way and didn't have to.  No matter the amount of loss they may feel, or whatever does happen to this child, something tells me they'll be punishing themselves for a long time.  Ste, good to see you again, sorry I've been away! xoxo CATHY

You said it!!! Where in the hell was their common sense?!?! I would think that someone may want to pursue neglect and abandonment and endangerment charges agains these two so called parents!!! I have 2 kids and woud have NEVER left my kids like that!!!! I am just so angry over that. But I am still hoping she is found safe. Tawnya

I wondered the same thing.  Why would they leave children that small alone.  I would have called for the food to be brought to the room.
I hope and pray she is ok.
People can not be too careful with their children, watch them as much as possible.  It is a scary world out there.

OMG is that how it happened?? I swear...some people just should NOT be parents.  Maybe that's a closed minded statement....but sometimes I really feel that way.

That was the first thing I thought too!  Why on Earth did they leave the kids alone?  I spent 18 days in hotels in March while my grandfather was dying.  My kids were with me and I never left the room and if I had I would never have left the door open.

That was exactly my thoughts also!  That was stupid.  I know the parents are going thru hell right now but they should be charged with child endangerment/neglect.  I hope they find Madeleine safe and sound.

I agree with you Stevie! I don't understand certain people some times. It's very sad! :o( I hope they do find her safe.

I've been saying the same right along hon! I hope the hell the parents get charged for child endangerment! If she is found , they would be truly foolhardy to trust these parents with her again. (Hugs) Indigo

Hi Stevie

Its lovely to find your blog again, I'm glad things are going well with you and that things are better between you and Ant, I remember when I first started reading your blog about 18 months ago how in love you both seemed to be, you also seem to be a much more positive person now than you were then

I know what you mean about Maddies parents, as a mother and a grandmother I cant get my head around how completely stupid these two highly intelligent people have been, I hope she is found safe and well.

good luck with the job hunting

I have to say I completely agree ~ in this day and age when you can't really trust anyone, you are absolutely right.

I must admit, I too, had those thoughts also.  I can't imagine why they would do that.  I hope to god that she is found alive.

Take care,
Millie :)

I hope and pray they find this little girl safe and alive. It breaks my heart when a child is missing. I did not know the parents left the children alone and door unlocked. I never leave Rebecca unattended. I am always in fear of losing her. ((((((((hugs)))))))))
Love ya,
Cindy xoxoxo

Just catching up after being away... glad to find you happy!

Hi Ste,
You know how I am with you and Adam, even as old as you both are. When we were living in bed and breakfast, I NEVER let you out if my sight, not even for a second. I managed that for 7 months. We even slept in the same room.
I cannot believe these so called parents can be so selfish as to leave their BABIES ... to go fill their faces.
They were offered a babysitter by the hotel staff and they refused it.
WHY ??
And did you notice how fast her Father came home when he heard there were FUNDS collected for them ? No wonder he got miffed when the media got hold of the story.
Now they're taking a TOUR to let people know of their plight...
THEY CAUSED IT !!! on my soapbox there didn't I ?

It was definitely a bad judgement call on the parents part but my heart is breaking for them. No one should ever have to go through this.
Take care,
