A 19-year-old mother was arrested after admitting she left her baby by the side of the road in Illinois. Luckily, the baby was found alive! Keep reading for more details!

An Amber alert was issued after three-week-old Mia Graci Thompson was reported missing, with her mother saying she was abducted from her car while she was at the post office. The mother later confessed that she left the baby by the side of the road.

Mother Kendra Meaker admitted to local police that she dropped her baby Mia Graci near a creek in the rural town of Toulon, Illinois. Local Sheriff Jimmie Dison told the TV station WQAD that at this time, the father is not being charged.

The baby was found approximately 12 hours after the mother abandoned her and the baby is doing “fine,” according to the news station.

The mother is being held without bail in the Stark County Jail and will appear in front of a judge on Sept. 28.

there are NO excuses for what she did, she knew perfectly well what she was doing, i could never and would never leave my daughter behind, i dont even leave her with my mom to go to the grocery store. She is garbage and will rot in hell. I hope they dont let her near that baby, or let her have anymore children of her own

Postpartum depression. Please give me a break. There are places that you can leave a baby if you don’t want them. I am so sick of EXCUSES for stupidity. The mother is probably a self absorbed women who did not want to be bothered with another child. Perhaps the child interfered with her computer time, or her phone time. But please don’t feel sorry for the woman who if she did not want another child could have taken measures to not get pregnant.. there are adoption agencies. And if she was worried about what people might think of her for putting it up for adoption – did she think that by leaving it along the roadside she would look good. STOP MAKING EXCUSES… she sucks,she should go to jail for a long time.

people who do things like put a baby on the side of the road and drive away are obviously not thinking rationally. is that a rational thing to do? put newborns on the roadside? no, it is not. thats why she didn’t take time to think it all through, “hmmmmmmm, i need to sit down, explore all of my options here. maybe discuss this with the family” it’s called post pardom depression and it overcomes the rational mind. she needs a fair punishment to go along with a lot of therapy so she can get in touch with reality. think about it- you have to be mental to do a mental thing like that. people sometimes need help. prayers for the baby!

Postpartum depression!!!! I believe she needs some serious help. The baby does have dad btw. He should divorce and get full custody of the children in the house. It don’t say much on him in the article. I do believe he should of realized how stressed the new mother was though and got her help. It never should of got this far.

I don’t know why the mother would do that. Maybe she could have been overwhelmed at having a second child but she didn’t have to leave the baby by the side of the road. She could have given the little one up for adoption. Thank God the baby was fine.

With the way this crazy world is, not only will she get out of jail fast, but is probably negotiating to get her own reality show, and eventually get her baby back.

She should not only go to jail but the baby should be removed from her custody permanently.
