i finished work early, i am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts, i went to the hall where her children did karate lessons. saw her car, and drove past as there was no one visible in the car. before i could enter the hall a friend stopped me and we talked for 25 mins, childminders car was visible in the distance in a car park and hall across the road behind me. no one went near the car during this time at daughts who are minded by my mother were the first to come out asked where their sister was and thats when i ran to the car to find her inside asleep and when she eventually came out of the hall she casually said that my baby was tired and left her there. sees no problem with this at all and then i found out that this is not an isolated incident. called the gardai and i have spoken to solicitor here who says its a civil not legal matter. however this childminder was a good friend and her godmother and i have removed the child from her care and tried to leave her out ofd her liofe however she has been requqesting friens to get pictures of my daughter via facebook and even bought one mutual friens a camera. ive been told to ignore her, but this is ongoing since may 2011!
