Great job by the woman, but I fail to see what God had to do with any of this. If that was the case, the child's caretaker wouldn't have died, or at least he would have been found a lot sooner. Unless you think God gets off on putting the kid through that for four days.

This is such a sad story! I am so glad it has a good ending, but I can't help to think why no one (neighbors, family, friends) failed to notice that no one had seen them for a few days. I know if I don't see my neighbors for 2 days I am getting a phone call from them checking in on me.

The first thing I did when I read this story was cry. I'm just overwhelmed. I've read so many stories where children are hurt or killed it was so refreshing to read one about a child who was saved. Kudos to Miss Washington for being a mother through and through who was able to sense and recognize the needs of a child.

Can u say scary...I just told my mom 2 days ago that I would really like if she calls me every morning just to make sure I am okay, because I have a 3 year old who I know would be lost without me. And if anything like this would ever happen would she know what to do...Then today my mom fowards me this story and it sent chills down my spine. Ms. Washington u are an AMAZING woman and u are truly an ANGEL!!

The GOD we serve is a AWESOME GOD. Ms. Washington you are a "HERO" and more. Really I thank GOD for you being patient and helping the little 4 year old. I know he was not him self being alone. But I know the MASTER above see down below. God Bless you and now the little boy is in good hands and will be taken care of. God Bless you and the child and the hands that he is in.

Thank God you followed your heart and did the right thing. As a previous call center worker, I know there is a lot of pressure to answer customers as quickly as possible. May God continue to bless you. Thanks for showing me that there are still caring people in America.

Finally, Capital One does something good other than cheating people on their credit card bills.
