Today it is still May 18th, 2017......earlier at around 7:20 PM my son called to tell me Elizabeth was found deceased in San Diego. She was just here this past Easter to visit her 2 year old daughter and her parents. The little girls father introduced her mother to heroin before Elizabeth conceived.....and both were in and out of rehab multiple times. We thought she was doing well until the baby was born addicted. Social Services were called in and the grandparents wee granted custody. I've been watching from the sidelines hoping Liz would fully recover......the baby's father killed himself about 18 months ago.....and now the little girl's mother is gone...........We don't have many details right now.......but what I do know is that the baby has lost her parents......This is all due to heroin. I am not the closest relative, but I fell very flat and defeated tonight.
I hope Friday we can figure out some way to help......I just don't know what else to say about this, I ache for her parents, for the lost opportunities, and for a small 2 year old girl who will never know her parents. This is just flat terrible.
