Hope Gallegos

VALENCIA COUNTY, N.M. – I really have a problem with mothers who doesn’t give any consideration to the beautiful babies they bring into this already difficult life. You know the ones I am talking about. The mothers who put their own desires before the best interest of their babies. The mothers you hear saying “Just because I have a baby, it doesn’t mean I can’t  party”, or the like.

Let me introduce you to Hope Gallegos, a mother who was blessed with a beautiful baby 16 months ago. On Saturday night, she went to a relative’s house with her 16 month old and decided to do some partying. Sometime Sunday morning she decided to drive herself and her baby home,only they didn’t make it home.

Gallegos either passed out or fell asleep while driving and drive straight into a fence. Jordan Martinez,the man who towed the truck from the scene, said parts of the fence crushed the truck.

“The railing of the fence was on top of the truck and one pole was in the passenger seat,” said Martinez.

Any way, Gallegos took a breathalyzer twice and blew an alcohol level of .08 and  .09.

Gallegos is charged with aggravated DWI and child abuse.

What’s that? You want to know how her sweet baby, that she was supposed to love and protect, is doing? The infant is in Pediatric ICU.Now how’s that for a woman whose title is mother?

    I’ll never understand why it is so difficult for parents like this one to acquire a babysitter when they want to go out and party. I guess it stems from pure selfishness and belief that their needs should come first, even if their child’s life may be at risk. Great write-up, Twisted. 😉
