There's something strange about the situation surrounding the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings. I guess I was a little shocked that her 25-year old father, who had obtained full custody of the two chlidren, ages 5 and 3, from their mother, would have his 17-year old girlfriend move in after only knowing her five months, and put her in charge of taking care of his kids full-time.
Now I'm hoping teenager Misty Croslin, the 17-year old high school dropout with no job, doesn't have anything to do with this disappearance but it is mighty suspicious. First off, what in hell is a 25-year old man doing with a 17-year old girl? I know, there isn't much age difference but she IS 17 years old, she's considered underage. Second, who invites a person they've been dating FIVE months to move in with them? And third, who gives total responsibility for the child-rearing to that 17-year old?
Misty Croslin claims that she has plenty of experience with children because she's been babysitting since she was 11 years old. But there's a big difference between babysitting and being a mom, which is essentially what she was to these kids. This man put not only his kids but this girl in a very bad position. You just don't hand your kids over to anyone to be raised, that's just not how it works.
And now we'll see what happens. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think so.
