Teen Mom Amber Bracci

This is Amber Lynn Bracci age 19, who was the mother of an adorable 16-month-old baby boy named, Rowan Bracci.

The Dorchester County Sheriff’s department began an investigation last weekend and held a press conference recently to announce the charges against Amber Lynn Bracci.

Amber appeared on a Charleston, TV station earlier in the week to talk about her story saying:

” I went in there and picked my son up out the bed at 10:30 in the morning and he was limp.”

“His eyes were closed and he was not responsive”, she told WCSC-TV.

Two days later the child died.

Rowan, 16 months

Amber has been charged with homocide by child abuse in little Rowan’s death.

Doctors at the hospital say that baby Rowan had severe brain swelling, They found evidence of past abuse just prior to the incident which led to Rowan’s murder.

Amber says she loved her son with all her heart and she may not have “been a perfect mom”, did things she “regrets”, but are they things that led to her own baby’s horrible death?

If SHE didn’t do it, then WHO DID IT? Are they worth spending a significant amount of time behind prison bars?  Because, I don’t think anybody is worth that. So, she needs to say who did it– if it wasn’t her, or admit to the murder plain and simple. I hope she did not do this, I really do.

If she couldn’t care for the child and got frustrated and things got out of hand-why not ask for help? Count to 20? Go for a walk to cool off ?

Why not give the family to a trusted family member or to a loving foster family? 19 is still very young and it would have been much better to do that than to put the baby in harms way because of her or someone else’s temper due to immaturity don’t you think?
