I feel bad for the mom. Not every one is hard wired to deal with shooting someone. And it is a heavy thing to take a life. I am glad that she was able to protect herself and save her baby. I hope she recovers and is able to get back into the swing of things.
However, I think I would have been so ****** I would have shot him again getting my kid back. I can tolerate a lot, but don't mess with my kids. Money and or objects can be replaced, that is what insurance is for. But my family is off-limits.
