That's what I thought. Then this 6 year old girl I'd never seen before walks into my home and starts going thru my refrigerator. Then exploring my house, opening every door. Some sponge bob square pants cartoons, a half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a glass of water, an Oreo cookie, and 3 police officers later her father was located. Fell asleep on the couch and when he woke up his daughter with down syndrome was gone.
- I frequently care for my a 6 year old, so it was no real problem.
- The father drove away with his daughter in a white van, no car seat, no seat belt, talking on his cell phone, while the police officers watched.
Thank goodness your story has a happy ending...it could of turned realy ugly...thank you for being a kind person....not that you could of made it ugly, but if she didn't land at your hjouse, then pray tell what could of happened..
I live in a pretty safe neighborhood. In my neighborhood her biggest dangers would be cars, dogs, and some drainage ditches. My door wasn't even locked. That turned out to be lucky. It usually is, but it's not something I worry about. She did not respond to questions, and had no ID tags. The police had no problem figuring out her identity. I'm guessing this wasn't the first time .
she kept walking around, opening every door, wanting to get into everything. Fortunately my home is fairly child proof. She actually walked out of my house at one point and rang the neighbors door bell and tried their door lock. When they didn't answer she went back into my house. But the police did give her a small Teddy Bear, and she sat in the back of a police car for a while.
