Well, this lady isn’t going to earn Mother of the Year anytime in her life. In a heartless move, a ‘mother’ – and I use the term loosely, as she doesn’t even deserve the title- ABANDONED her disabled child in the woods for 5 days so she could see a boyfriend. Doesn’t get much more sickening than this.
A Philadelphia mother accused of abandoning her quadriplegic son in the woods before skipping town to see her boyfriend has been arrested.
Nyia Parler, 41, was taken into custody by authorities in Montgomery County, Maryland overnight Saturday on charges including aggravated assault, simple assault and neglect of a care-dependent person.
Police say she traveled to Maryland from Pennsylvania either last Sunday or Monday after leaving her 21-year-old wheelchair-bound son in a wooded park with nothing but a blanket and a Bible.
Parler’s son, who is non-verbal and suffers from cerebral palsy, was found on Friday night lying beneath a rain-soaked blanket and a pile of leaves on the ground, 10 feet from his wheelchair and the Bible.
Officials said the son, who has not been identified, would have died if he had not been spotted by people walking on a nearby road, reports NBC Philadelphia.
‘This kid is obviously a fighter. It’s just unbelievable how we found him last night.
It’s just heartbreaking to see how another human, especially a mother, could treat him like that,’ Lt. John Walker of Philadelphia Police told ABC.
The son was hospitalized with dehydration, malnutrition, a cut to his back and eye injuries. According to Philly.com two of his aunts, who are with him in hospital, have been trying to obtain guardianship for years.
Parler’s other son, a 16-year-old, is said to be in the custody of an aunt.
What kind of MOTHER would do this to her son? Her poor disabled son, who did nothing to her? I have news for you, lady. children don’t have to sacrifice so you can have the life you want – you sacrifice the life you want so that your kids can have the life that they deserve, darn it. You don’t deserve this sweet boy, and I hope you never see him again. For pete’s sake, do yourself a favor, and don’t spend any time trying to be this kids mom anymore.
