Today at the playground two Spanish ladies were playing and talking with Gregory. I don’t mind this because he is within two feet of me. These ladies I did not know. We were talking and I could not see something and I told them that I had very bad vision. They helped me get out a splinter out of Gregory’s hand. Well, after a while all the other children who were playing at the playground went across the street to play. I have never taken Gregory over there to play because I do not know the area. With my limited vision I did not feel it safe to go over there. Gregory wanted to go over there. I was not going to take him. He was running around all over the area where the playground was and that was great until one of the ladies thought that she should just take my son across the street without asking. This totally freaked me out. I grabbed my keys and ran after my little boy. I could not see him. I had no idea where he was. I was so scared. I tried to go where I thought he was but I tripped. I did not have my cane with me. The other lady came across the street and helped me to get where my son was. I stayed for a couple of minutes because Gregory was happy, but I was very upset. I carried him fussing back across the street and right on home. Nothing bad had happened other than the fact a woman took Gregory somewhere I did not know how to get without my permission. I did not know this woman and did not know her name. Usually when Gregory is playing I am only a couple of feet away from him, but today I was a couple of yards. I was still very close I could still see him (My bad vision doesn’t allow me to see very far). I knew where he was and that he was ok until this woman took him across the street. Never again will I let him play more than a couple of feet away from me. I still don’t know why this woman thought it was ok to take my son anywhere without asking. All it took was two seconds. I love my little boy so much. Right now I am mad at those women and scared because what could have happened. Thank God that everything was ok.
