Too close to home

This is particularly sad for me, as I used to live close to the suburb where this tragedy occurred.

Troubled Roseville mom suspect in girls’ stabbing

A single mother who apparently stabbed her two young daughters and
herself Thursday afternoon in their well-kept Roseville townhouse may
have been overwhelmed by stress and financial problems, a close friend
said.

Neighbors said Sieferman is a single mother who adopted the girls
from China. Her online blog identifies the girls as Hannah, adopted in
1999, and Linnea, adopted in 2003.

The blog contains Sieferman’s account of her longheld desire to
adopt daughters from overseas and her joy upon meeting them and
watching them grow.
