OK, so allow me to introduce you to Domini (5) and Diani (3), cute aren’t they? These two cuties are sisters and were found wondering a Brooklyn sidewalk alone and carrying disposable diapers on Sunday, January 29th. The girls were bundled up warmly and wearing UGG boots and showed no outward signs of abuse. So how did they end up on a Brooklyn sidewalk alone? I’m getting to that right now!
Now, let me introduce you to their mother Dalisha Adams (26). It appears Dalisha needed a break and decided to drop her daughters off at the paternal grandmother’s apartment to take a few hours for her. Not a big deal, as mothers and fathers here was can understand the need for a little “me” time now then, except that Dalisha literally dropped her daughters off on the side of the road and took off. Not only did she drop them off on the side of the road, it was not even in front of the grandmother’s complex, not that that would make it better, but instead the complex next to it.
The sisters were found and police were alerted by an elderly couple who noticed them standing on the sidewalk next to a busy street holding only diapers and looking shaken and confused at about 2:40 pm. When questioned by police the girls gave them their first names and told them their mommy dropped them off. They couldn’t tell police where they lived accept that they lived in a blue house with flowers outside they also said their mother’s name was Dalisha and she drove white car.
While police searched for Dalisha, going door to door at the apartment complex, scouring nearby surveillance video and getting pictures of the sister out to the media, a picture of, what appears to be, a naked man holding a bottle of pink champagne was posted to Dalisha’s Facebook. She and her sister have denied she posted that picture, claiming perhaps the girls’ father, whom she has a protective order against for domestic violence, may have done it.
The above mentioned protective order and the family’s history with CPS because of the domestic violence is how the police were able to identify the girls’ mother. After identifying Dalisha police went to her apartment around 10 pm and used a crowbar to gain entry but she wasn’t there. She would get word from a co-worker police were looking for her and turned herself in around 11 pm. Dalisha has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. The sisters are in the custody of the state, temporarily.
A lot of people have a lot to say about Dalisha and the way she treats the girls. Neighbors are coming forward and saying that she is often heard cursing at the girls telling them to “shut the fuck up.” One neighbor said she heard her tell the youngest “I’ll punch you in the fucking face.” Shortly before she dropped the girls off she was heard telling one of the crying children, “Shut the fuck up, I’m going to get you out of here.” I feel so bad for these little girls, this is awful. They had to have stood there and wondered why she left and if she was going to come back. The thought of that is so frightening to me.
The paternal grandmother is trying to get the girls and says though she is angry she does not believe she left the girls alone intentionally. I am not sure how in the love of gawd she can say that, I mean seriously, she dropped them on the side of the road. She thinks she meant to drop them in front of her complex, OK so she has never taken her kids to their grandmother’s before and doesn’t know which complex is hers. I doubt that, and even if she thought she was in front of the right complex, in what universe is it OK to drop off two little girls of any age on the sidewalk and drive off?
Of course Dalisha has her own version of what happened and in her version she dropped the girls off to the grandmother’s apartment and handed them off to grandma. She admits to not going into the apartment for fear of her ex, but said she did not leave the girls standing on the side of the road. Well Dalisha…I think the fact that your child (no one else) told the police you dropped them off and drove away kinda calls bull shit on your version of the incident.
Her sister and friends are saying, they don’t believe she dropped the girls on the side of the road and left and describe her as a doting mother. Well, ladies in the world I live in “doting mothers” don’t tell their 3-year-old child, “I’m going to punch you in the fucking face.” Just sayin’….
Thanks to all who sent in the tip.
