Mothering In the News

1. Mona Lisa was a new mom.
2. Teenager hides pregnancy, gives birth alone, kills baby; gets convicted of second-degree murder.

Recent motherhood may have made Mona Lisa enigmatic and I can't condone someone tossing her newborn into her neighbor's yard; but after giving birth alone, in secret, not one of us would be in our right mind.

I thought Mona was really a man???

It's terrible about the teenager. Terrible about the baby. How does a young girl get to that point alone? There must be some shared responsibility.
