(WBBH)  A Port Charlotte, Florida woman is charged with child abuse, after police say she intentionally burned her two young children with a hot stick so she would know they were hers.

Kayla R. Oxenham, 23, has bonded out of jail.

According to a police report, the children are 5-years-old and 7-years-old. They told authorities that Oxenham told them she "forgot how much she loved fire."
