My wife was given away by her mother......Her mother was 20 years old and already had a one year old, her husband had run off,

Just part of the culture, unfortunately. Something that has fed the Thai prostitution business for decades, as abandoned mothers often have nowhere else to turn to make money.

The photo is disgusting, but it's worth reading the further information in the linked article.

 

Police are aware of her circumstances and have referred her to the Ministry of Social Development (social services). Hopefully she will get some help.

 

Quote

“She did not have enough money to support her second child, so she decided to take public transportation from Surat Thani province to Phuket to leave her child here in the hope that he would be found safe and that someone else would be able to take better care of him,” Col Aganit explained.

Sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for this woman abandoning this kid like this - or the angry stares of the mob in the photo.

 

There is no reason whatsoever she could not have given the child to an orphanage, taken it home or something. Anyone could have taken the kid - from a pedo to a salesman.

 

She had 9 months to plan the kids 'abandonment' and best this fool could do was abandon it like a piece of trash !

 

I take care of a child 'abandoned' at birth by the mother - but the mother planned this well in advance and as much as she did not want the kid, she also would not just dump it
