I am in total agreement with Kim R. Filer ("Authorities too quick to kill rescued baby fox" May 7). This poor baby fox was doomed from birth. First by an accident that put him in harm's way and then by "authorities" who had to show their big nasty hand of power to kill. How sad for those who have so little care and empathy for creatures who are at mercy of men who couldn't even take a week to see if the fox was a rabies carrier before snuffing out his little life.

I wanted to thank you for the article, "Approaching birth, preparing for death" (July 28). I am the mother of two; one plus an angel, Lilly, who was born at 21 weeks gestation. The emotions that parents and their families have to deal with when faced with these types of situations are enormous, and that is putting it lightly. Thank you for building awareness that these circumstances exist and exist far more frequently then they are talked about. Lives are forever changed when an angel is born.

Gale Terera Roland, a Baltimore woman who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2010 shaking death of 10-month-old Micha Crane, was sentenced to 10 years in prison last week, with all but two years of the term suspended. Roland, 53, is to serve her time on home detention, according to the infant's mother, Danielle Crane, who said she was disappointed by the sentence. "I'm very frustrated," Crane said.

" Mark Cheshire, a spokesman for the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office, called Micha's death "a terrible tragedy and an enormous loss.

Summertime is a prime season for babies — for anticipating them, having them or just watching them go about their napping, toddling and drooling business. Maybe we just see more babies this time of year, perspiring in their jogging strollers with their fitness-oriented parents, sitting in laps on lawns with their melting snowballs, or being held aloft in front of frighteningly toothy giraffes at the zoo. Whatever the reason, you can't escape the abundance of babies in the summer, and it's delightful because these mini-humans remind us that life is a journey that is unpredictable, joyful and sometimes just plain gross.

"The first kick I took was when I hit the ground. " -- Bruce Springsteen, "Born in the USA. " So now, Jonah has received a lesson in How Things Are. He is 19 months old. Sitting on his mother's lap on a recent Delta Airlines flight on approach to Atlanta, he was doing what babies tend to do on airplanes, particularly airplanes that are changing altitude. He was crying his little head off. Shut that "n----r baby" up. Those were the alleged words of the alleged man in the next seat just before he allegedly slapped the baby with an open palm, leaving a scratch below his right eye. The alleged man, 60-year-old Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, denies this sequence of events and pleaded not guilty last week to a charge of simple assault.

It's not every day that a person makes a selfless and heartfelt donation to a hospital. It's even rarer when it comes from a teenager. Thirteen-year-old Cassidy Schirmer is the exception. She chose to complete her National Junior Honor Society service project by donating to the Greater Baltimore Medical Center neonatal intensive care unit. Schirmer got the idea from a family friend who works for the hospital. The Bel Air eighth-grader hosted a "virtual" baby shower online, raising $300 to purchase supplies.

Remember how President Barack Obama promised he would heal the planet and make the seas stop rising?  Well, it turns out the president does have a special, magical touch. It's just not with the environment. It's with babies.  The White House recently put out this video of a crying baby whose family had come to see the president. First Lady Michelle Obama couldn't comfort the child, but the second the president held the baby, the crying stopped.  Now, can that magical touch work with the American people a second time around?
