I just read an article that tried to make Bylinda out as a hero for trying to find out what happened to her son. It's easy to do that after the fact. she failed her son in every way. I do sympathize with her pain but there are no hero's in this story. I am not even sure i can finish this one because it hurts so much to hear what happened to this innocent child. Breaks my heart!
