Nothing To Do With Infertility...But I Figure You'll All Say A PRAYER

any responsible parents, Kristy and Josh Schwade wanted what was best for their only child, Kaleb. They did a background check on their day care worker, and even interviewed her in her home for two hours. Kristy was even willing to drive 20 miles out of her way to provide, what they thought to have been, "optimum" care in a good neighborhood.

On May 9th, 2007 their worst nighmare was brought to fruition. After being in the care of this home day care worker only five times, Kaleb was picked up by his Grandmother and Aunt. They noticed that he was lethargic and experiencing obvious breathing abnormalities. The caregiver told them he was ill, but Kaleb had just visited the doctors the day before and was given a "clean bill of health". When Kristy arrived at her mother's home to pick Kaleb up, she described him as "having no life in his body". She tried repeatedly to wake him, but with no avail. She and her father got in the car and rushed to the hospital. While in the vehicle, Kristy lifted Kaleb's little eyelids. She noticed that his pupils were different sizes. Being the wife of an EMT, she knew immediately that this was the sign of a head injury- Kaleb needed IMMEDIATE care. They stopped at the nearest firestation. The ambulance took him to the nearest hospital, and he was classified as a "trauma alert". He was then life-flighted to Tampa General Hospital, and was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). He was diagnosed as having Shaken Baby Syndrome. They also discovered that he had been SMOTHERED!

Kristy is not currently working, and she and Josh spend every possible moment by their young son's side. Medical bills, cost of gas, lawyer fees (I assume they will begin building), and general living expenses are mounting.

When something happens to your child, your world STOPS. Suddenly it doesn't matter that your "roots" are growing out and you are getting split ends. It doesn't matter that your neighbor is parking his dumpy car in your parking spot. You no longer care that someone cut you off on the highway, or that someone jumps infront of you in line at the grocery store. Nothing else matters but your child.

Kaleb is their world. The doctors. The PICU. It's all that matters now.

Sorry...Didn't know where else to post it and I figured that you ladies could all put yourself in their shoes if it was your child, especially seeing how some of you have either tried really hard to have precious angels and some of us are still trying...

Is this your child? Well I am so sorry to hear that this happened to that insocent child. I will pray to God so that he can heal from all that and I hope that the parents find a path where they can recoved from this. I know how it feels when it comes to your child. In a matter like that nothing like you said nothing matter except your child. I hope everything turns out good for the family and the child. It is scary that some babysitters don't take the responsiblility to take good care of a child. Poor insocent children.
I hope she pays for what she did.

God bless the family and the child they will be in my prayers and keep us posted on how it goes.
