I called CPS yesterday :( ~~WEIRD UPDATE POST 103~~ - Page 6

post #101 of 104
What a relief. I feel sick and shuddery at reading that poor baby's experience earlier on. Makes me want to cry and rage!!!

I wondered as I was reading if the parents wanted to refuse treatment due to spiritual beliefs or something???

Anyway, it's great to hear the baby is doing better now. But I am concerned for her long term health and safety. Okay this was just this incident now taken care of. But what about the next time she has a serious flare up? Or what about some other kind of illness over the years? (Not trying to rain on the parade here, just airing some concerns).

Thank goodness she got the help she needed. I really hope the grandmother, who seems to take proper care of the baby, will be more involved into the future. I wonder what's up with the parents...?

UPDATE!!!!

So, the baby (and her brothers) last day was last Thursday. A new daycare opened right across the street from their house so the parents/grandparents decided that would work better for everyone. I didn't get to say good-bye to the baby last week because my son was in the hospital (from Wednesday to Saturday). Apparently the dad was upset when he picked up the baby and told my co-workers he was upset because I wasn't there and I had promised to say good-bye to the baby (which I did, but come on... how was I supposed to know my son would get ill and be admitted to the hospital!?!). So today I came into work (I only worked the afternoon instead of all day today) and my boss called me into the office (uh-oh, I'm thinking!). She hands me a card that's from the baby and her family. Apparently they had come in this morning looking for me The card thanked me for caring about the baby and taking good care of her and loving on her and said they wanted to come by sometime and get a picture of the baby with me. Also included was a gift card to a store. It was really sweet. The weird part- the other 2 workers in the baby room got nothing. Not even a thank you card. I feel really bad because the parents don't know I was the one who called CPS, obviously. But they could obviously see I love and care deeply for their little girl.

I feel weird about the gift though. I'm tempted to spend it on an outfit for the baby (and maybe something for the older brother) and just have it handy as a gift when they come by to say goodbye (my boss said they mentioned coming by Monday when I work all day).

Don't feel weird about the gift Steph. These parents wanted to give you something to let you know that they appreciate you. Feel blessed that you are appreciated at work.
