she's my relative and she deserves what she gets. she was always a loser and a troublemaker in the family. her parents didn't 'parent' her at all.

feel no pity for this idiot! dawn stole her cousins husband away and had a kid with him and then gave her son to her mother to raise because she chose drugs and the party life instead. she then went onto have more kids with other men, and didn't keep them either. someone should have taken her ability to have kids away, a long time ago...... no one in the family feels sorry for her at all, except for her parents

I knew her when we were kids and if you knew her, you know she raised herself. Both of her parents were mentally retarded and I can't believe she was never taken out of that home. How many kids did she end up having?

These people don't have a clue what they are talking about dawn was raised very well she always got what ever she wanted and was good in school she just got into the drug scene and that took over her life as it does too alot of people i have a feeling who wrote these comments and we will discuss it further when i see you in person. And she never stole her cousin's husband he was separated from her before he and dawn got together so get your story right
