Houston resident Andrea Yates was responsible for the deaths of her five children (aged 6 months to 7 years).

She drowned them all in the family bathtub in 2001.

She took each child’s body and laid it on the bed and covered them all with a blanket.

Yates herself called 911 to confess that she drowned all of her children as a result of postpartum psychosis.

Yates is not allowed to leave the hospital grounds and doesn’t get many visitors.

She spends most of her time walking the hospital gardens and working on crafts in the hospital craft room.

All items Yates manufactures are sold anonymously.

Proceeds from her work go to the Yates Children Memorial Fund, a charity founded by Parnham, Yates’ attorney.

It is tragic that all of her children were killed.
