Heartless mother deserts two daughters, leaving them on Brooklyn sidewalk with extra diapers Mom deserts girls on sidewalk
A malevolent mom who deserted her two daughters, ages 3 and 2, on a Brooklyn sidewalk Sunday, leaving them each extra diapers and a heartbreaking lesson in hard knocks, has been busted, officials said Monday.
“Mommy just left us on the sidewalk and drove away,” the older girl told a Daily News photographer just seconds after a good Samaritan found her and her sister stranded on a bustling corner in Canarsie on Sunday. in front of the Bay View Houses on Shore Parkway, cops said.
“They gave us their first names and said their mom dropped them off,” a police source said.
The older girl told cops her name is Domini and that her little sister, who said very little to police, is Dioni, a source said.
“We live in a blue house with flowers in front,” Domini told The News as cops took custody of her and her sister.
She told cops she believed they lived on 53rd St., but could not recall what neighborhood or borough they were from, according to the source.
The sisters bore no obvious signs of abuse, but were taken to Brookdale University Hospital as a precaution.
Cops fanned out in the area, going door to door hoping to identify the forsaken sisters and track down their mother. Detectives also scoured surveillance video from the Bay View Houses and nearby buildings.
The older girl told cops their mother’s name is Dalisha and she was driving a white car,
but she did not know the make nor model of the vehicle.
Cops were able to piece together the mother’s identity and arrested Dalisha Adams, 26, of Glenwood Road in Brooklyn, police said. She was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Cops were first alerted to the bizarre case when they received a 911 call after an elderly couple found the children standing at the busy intersection of Shore Parkway and E. 102nd St. with cars zooming by, sources said.
“They were wandering up and down the sidewalk for a while, just playing by themselves,” said Michelle Davis, 43, of Brooklyn, who was visiting a friend at the Bay View Houses when the girls were found.
“It’s horrible. How could you leave your own children out there?” Davis said. “They’re babies and you just leave them out there like that?”
Domini was dressed in a a brown down jacket, and blue jeans and had pink and white beads in her hair. Dioni was wearing a pink down jacket and matching pants.
The girls were not crying, but appeared confused as to why their mother would desert them on the streets.
Officials from the city Administration for Children’s Services took temporary custody of the sisters.
The state’s Abandoned Infant Protection Act allows parents of newborns up to 30 days old to anonymously, and without fear of prosecution, drop their infants off at a hospital, police stationhouse or firehouse.
“I don’t know how anyone could do that to little kids like that,” said Lizzette Santiago, 38, a mother of three who lives at the Bay View Houses.
Santiago said she learned of the abandoned sisters from cops who took them door to door in the area. Like others in the housing project,
Santiago did not recognize the girls.
