Thank you for being a caring and compassionate person Ms. Washington. In today's society, many people would not have taken time to talk with the child, nor try to help him. You were this little boy's guardian angel. God bless you.

God bless this woman for thinking outside the box. We have become such an isolated society and you hear frequently of people passing away alone. Here is this little child all alone for days with a deceased parent(?) and no family or friend available to intervene.

Thank goodness this little boy was able to care for himself for so long. Please let this serve as reminder to teach all young children to dial 911 is case something happens to mommy or daddy.

God bless you Ms. Washington. Your five year old is super lucky to have such a good mommy as you. I hope this rescued child in GA gets to live with and be loved by someone as wonderful as Ms. Washington.

I really hope Ms. Washington reads this article and the positive comments from other readers. Too often some schmuck will get a wild hair and leave something nasty. SUPER glad not to come across that today.
Ms. Washington, if you do read this ~ good for you! I too am a mother and from one woman to another, I am proud of you.
