  1. This is not a normal thing . A child all day in day care . 911 isn’t called most likely to after the lose of this inacent child . The only thing here is I stake my life. The child was sick . Some parents today are too rapped up in there own little world & DO NOT REALISE the RESPONSIBILITY OF BRINGING UP A CHILD IN TODAY’S WORLD. DOCTOR’S ALSO SHOULD TAKE A LOOK AT PUSHING THIS CHILD’S Previous Health till the last Breath . Rest in peace. . THE ANGELS HAVE COME TO TAKE YOU HOME
