A North Carolina single mother who abandoned her children on the side of the road says that she did it because she is “so tired.”
A police warrant says that the mother left her 9-year-old and 19-month-old on the side of the road near a school last month and then sped off. A parent noticed the action, and picked up the children, bringing them to the nearby school.
“I feel terrible about what I did,” mother Jennifer Westfall said. “I’ve always had my kids’ back no matter what. I was just so tired. Absolutely tired.”
Westfall has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor child abuse. she was released from jail earlier this week, but will be due back in court later this month.
