    I don't know how they can be open for business as usual, when such a terrible event happened. My heart aches for this family.
    Why are they not shut down? I've seen daycares shut down for less.

    Adding to the poignancy of this story, the mom of the deceased toddler works as a psychologist at a women's shelter, and the family had the beneficience to request donations in lieu of flowers.

    This is interesting, not sure how it connects with the case:

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1...yfam20.article

    "Benjamin died Jan. 14. Two days later, Amy and Andy Kingan took Benjamin's twin sister, Emily, and 3-year-old brother, Jacob, to a pediatrician for tests to see if they carried any genetic abnormalities that could have led to Benjamin's death."

    The family was led to believe Benjamin died of natural causes...convinced enough to have planned a funeral for last Saturday which had to be cancelled. They did not realize the severity of the head fracture (and hence abuse) until the autopsy. The injury was not visible externally, and the daycare worker didn't confess right away.

    I read this little baby took his blanket, pacifier, and cuddled up in a bouncy chair where they found him unresponsive thirty minutes later. If this "caregiver" had been honest about what she had done, could they have called 911 and possibly saved this little boy? I have known about children that suffered head trauma such as this and survived. She didn't tell anyone until she realized this baby was seriously hurt, and, even then, she didn't tell the truth and prevented him the proper intervention. She may not have meant to hurt this baby but even after what she did to him, she prevented him comfort and care. Such a coward.

    Oh this is so sad those babies had to go through testing because this lady did not honestly admit to what she did.

    TY twinkiesmom for explaining why they did that testing.

    That is strange. It sounds like what the defense is going to do with Caylee's bones or so I've heard. They want to know if she had any genetic abnormalities that might have had something to do with her death. Talk about grasping for straws. Did she wrap the tape around her own head and mouth????

    Daycare Center Finally Closed

    http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2...re-center.html


    "Under the watchful eye of police parents this afternoon hurriedly picked up their children after a state agency closed a Lincolnshire day-care center where a teacher's assistant is accused of fatally slamming a 16-month-old boy to the floor."

    It's about time.

    The link says that the daycare has been closed for two reasons. I am wondering if there were other violations and incidents of children being harmed prior to the death of this young boy?

    I am so sad reading this thread - and your post is so true. To think he crawled away into a bouncy with his blanket and pacifier...
    Oh that poor little one.

    OMG, so very sad. We are not wealthy by a long shot, but I am blessed to be able to stay at home with our children. I read this story to my DH and he kissed me and told me "thank you" for all that I do. This whole story just breaks my heart. Off to kiss the kids goodnight...again.

    This story literally made me nauseus. That he wasn't even being held while he was dying.

    Why didn't the other worker do anything!!!! Call an ambulance, something....anything!! If he had received medical attention, he could possibly have lived.

    My prayers are with his family.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    This story is so sad and I am grateful that my wife and I waited until we were certain we would never have to rely on daycare before we had kids.
