The death of 10-month old Marcia Poston breaks my heart. Iím sure everyone involved has a heartbreaking story: the daycare provider who will live with the babyís killing on her conscience; the troubled 7-year old who, police allege, fatally abused the baby; and the poor mom who was probably doing the best she could to find adequate, affordable care for her precious child. And of course, innocent Marcia, whose chubby smile I canít bear to look at -- all that potential cut short.
Itís the kind of story that sends chills down any working motherís spine. No matter how much you love your care provider, you wonder: could that happen to my baby? Iíd appreciate hearing your thoughts.
