L station at 14th St. to Brooklyn--Canarsie - NY
Hi, I was in the L station at 14th St. and a black woman walked by with a white blonde-haired baby in a stroller. The short blond-haired baby with brown? eyes looked to be about 2 yrs of age. Her eyes were blank. I have never seen anything like that. It was frightening. No life at all behind her eyes. This was extreme emptiness. Her face was smudged with dirt. She had been crying and something crusted was by her nose. I am 60 yrs old and have seen tons of babies and cared for babies. I should have talked with her caretaker. I couldn't... the caretaker was wearing a very garish outfit--very tight clothes. Her hair was dressed in a bouffant style. She had a tattoo on her left bicep. She wore dark blue jeans: with multicolored patches on the waist and pockets. Very unusual. The clothes made her look like a hooker. This may have been her baby -- either way-- I believe something is happening to that baby. I am a social worker and its part of the job to look for abuse. I am not ever on the L train. I wasn't expecting this. She got on the L train going to Brooklyn--Canarsie. God help that baby.
