EXCELLENT NEWS! I'm curious as to the details. Please remember that there will probably be a lot more comments on this situation on SM. Don't bring that here unless you can attach MSM to it. Thanks, I would hate to see us get shut down right now. IMO

I'm glad he's safe. I hope the church does a complete review of its Child Protection Policy and Protocol.
Agreed. I can't imagine what the caregiver who let him go is/was feeling - especially if it is an older child (teen) who was tasked with that responsibility - as I have seen done at some churches. Our church now requires background checks and two adults, one of whom is a professional, not just a volunteer. It's a very big responsibility and has not always been treated as such historically.
