Dear Ladies,

First, thank you for taking the time to read this. I apologize for this being my first post. I have lurked for a while and enjoyed reading what other folks have to say, but have stayed (uncharacteristically) quiet.

I have a need for emergency daycare for my 15 mo old daughter. The in-home daycare provider I had been using and trusted was involved in a drug sting on Friday. While she sat in a gambling hall, she allowed her unlicensed teenage daughter to drive my daughter around to sell drugs. Thank God the police rescued my daughter, but I have no idea how many times this has happened. I am appalled.

Needless to say, my daughter is never going back there, and I will do everything in my power to ensure she never cares for children again.

I will be attempting to find new, permanent child care for my daughter starting Monday. On the chance that I am not able to find someone immediately, if someone could watch my daughter for a couple of weeks until I can find a permanent solution, I would be very grateful.

If you think you could help out for a couple weeks, please just send me a message. Thank you so much for taking time to read this!

I am so sorry! I wish you the best of luck...maybe a drop-in child care would work? This one is near Southpoint Mall: Green Kids

OMG I can't even imagine getting a phone call like that. I hope everything turns out better with the new provider, mama.
