There but for the grace of God...

This happened to my good friend Kim, to her daughter who like my own is non-verbal, vulnerable and loved beyond reason.

Please leave a comment over at Huffington Post to keep this story up for longer and push it up the ratings to front page.

And before you get too comfortable thinking it wouldn't happen here, we have CRB checks and Disclosure Scotland checks - passing one of those only means you haven't been caught for it. That's not to say I don't see the importance and value of these checks, just don't get complacent.

Remember that nursery worker who was part of a paedophile ring? She was working in a day nursery using her position to abuse babies and toddlers. She passed a check to work there.
