The New York Daily News reports that talk-show host Rosie ODonnell had to give up one of her four adopted children last month. Three-year-old Mia, who was brought home by ODonnell nine months ago, apparently continued to exhibit symptoms of past abuse such as waking up screaming and scratching her arms. ODonnell explained, There were real danger concerns with my baby Blakie. Mia has been taken for treatment at a mental health center. ODonnell stated, Im just praying the doctors decide she can come back.... Its a tragedy for me and my whole family. I think I can save everyone. Its my weakness and my strength.
