Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

EDIT 2***:My Confession...I almost lost my child to a simple mistake

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I was at work and normally DF texts me but for some reason that night he didn't. I knew in my gut something was wrong. I called him and as soon as he picked up he said hold on and another man got on the phone it was a police officer. Heres exactly what happen:Officer:"Ms.____, this is officer ____ with the Prince William County police Department I'm here with your DF. Are you the mother of ____"My heart Drops!
Me:"yes I am what's going on"(I'm panicking but I'm driving home)
Officer:" Ma'am your DF fell asleep and left your front door unlock so your son left out and has been walking around outside in the cold with only a shirt and pamper on" " He (my son) followed a young man in his house". "Are you on your way home?"







Me: "Omg! Is ___ ok where is he!!!" I thought I was going to get into an accident.

Long story short my dumb ass DF falls asleep with my front door unlock my Autistic 3 year old son leaves out and is walking for hours alone. DF wakes up and looks for him. Woman whose house my son walks into takes care of him until the police gets there and until I get there (she called police and NOT DF) Moral of the story is I believe GOD looked out for my DS that night and I'll never forget that feeling of what if...

Children are kidnapped, murdered, and more. he could have been hit by a car, that woman could've kept him, and sooo much more. Kiss your children EVERY Night!

ETA: DS is ok now we have, child proof safety locks on door. DF was charged with a misdemeanor Neglect of a Minor and Trespassing . The officer wanted to charge him with a felony but didn't.

EDIT: THANK YOU FOR YOUR WELL WISHES AND DS IS FINE. THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW I WANT TO ADDRESS. I BELIEVE IN GOD, IF YOU DON'T SO BE IT BUT DON'T YOU DARE COMPARE MY SITUATION TO THE SANDY HOOK INCIDENT AND COME BACK WITH A SMART ASS COMMENT AND SAY "OH YEA GOD WAS TOO BUSY PROTECTING YOUR CHILD FOR HOURS WHILE HE LET THOSE CHILDREN FALL BY THE WAYSIDE" HOW DARE YOU GO THERE! LIFE IS LIFE THERE IS AN ORDER AND A BALANCE. PEOPLE DIE EVERYDAY AND PEOPLE ARE BORN EVERYDAY. MAY THOSE POOR SOULS REST IN PEACE AND STOP USING THEIR LOST AS A WAY TO "JUSTIFY" YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT GOD. NEXT: FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WANT TO KNOW YES IM STILL WITH MY DF. IT'S NOT BECAUSE IM WEAK OR PATHETIC BUT BECAUSE HE'S A GOOD MAN AND A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT OCCURRED AND HE FIGHTS THOSE DEMONS WITHIN HIMSELF EVERYDAY. I CANT PUNISH HIM MORE THEN HE PUNISHES HIMSELF FOR LETTING US DOWN. HE HAS BEEN IN OUR LIVES SINCE DS WAS 10 MONTHS. IF EVERYONE RAN AT THE SIGHT OF EVERY PROBLEM THEN THIS WORLD WOULD BE FILLED WITH LONELY DAMN PEOPLE. WE'RE ADULTS WE TALK THINGS OUT AND WORK THROUGH THEM LIKE EVERY ADULT RELATIONSHIP SHOULD.
***EDIT 2*** LADIES I JUST WANTED TO SAY I NEVER WANTED THIS TO TURN INTO A HUGE DEBATE OVER IF THERE IS A GOD OR NOT. I MENTIONED HIM BECAUSE AS A BELIEVER I WAS JUST GIVING HIM THE THANKS AND PRAISE FOR MY SONS SAFE RETURN. ME DOING SO IS NO DIFFERENT FROM A MUSLIM THANKING ALLAH OR MOHAMMED OR A GREEK THANKING ZEUS. THEY BELIEVE SO THEY GIVE THANKS. NOW TO THE LADIES WHO KEEP SAYING "BYE DF" WHAT IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT AND YOU FELL ASLEEP WHILE WATCHING HIS KID AND YOU DON'T HAVE ANY YET, SHOULD HE LEAVE YOU AS WELL? LETS BE REAL HERE, ACCIDENTS HAPPEN TO THE BEST OF US. FROM THE STORIES SHARED KIDS DO ESCAPE. IT'S A LESSON LEARNED.

Wow, that is scary. Glad he is okay.  Your DF made a mistake and hopefully he has learned his lesson.  Hugs.

Oh yea he couldn't be alone with my son while I was at work

Quoting KrissyKC:

accidents happen... but thank God that he's ok, and I agree, I bet the Lord guided his footsteps to her door.

I'm sorry for your DF, I hope it was just a mistake that he will not do again, and if so... once you are able to breathe again, maybe you can forgive him, too....  I can't even imagine what he feels about himself right now.

((side note, if he is foolish like this all the time, though, find another sitter!!! LOL!)))

I'm thankful this turned out well, but Im sure your DF didnt want anything to happen to your LO. I understand not locking the door is a BIG syupid mistake, one I'm sure he soon wont forget.

I even brought him in my house to wait for the cops, poor thing was freezing. I gave him something to eat and got warm cloths on him. His mom could not stop crying and thanking me for finding him.

The landlord where live had me had to call the cops cuz the grandson of my nieghbor was out side for 2 1/2 hours in a Pamper and a t shirt, the 16 yr old who was watching him fell alseep. I banged on the front door 10 times, even knocked on windows no answer. All he would say when I asked him were us his mom he said she went walk.
