In our defense we have 5 kids so losing one is pretty easy

I tend to agree although I think I'd be very overprotective as well.

The bad thing is that the kids were put in the custody of CPS, not exactly a paragon of caretaking. Why not just let them be home with their mom? Give her a stern warning but it seems to me the kid's best interest is with their mom.

In the two hours that followed, local authorities from the Chino Valley Police tried to find the twins' caretakers but to no avail. Finally the two toddlers were returned home after their mother, wife of Dewees, reported them missing.

Dewees stated that he put the twins down for an afternoon nap only to find that they disappeared when he went to check up on them hours later.
I'm kind of shocked how soft some of you are being on him. It said the mother was the one who reported them missing which kind of makes me think Edwin put them down and NEVER went and checked on them and didn't know they were missing until his wife came home. I'm just glad the babies were found alive. Like atom said, August in AZ...things could easily have turned out sooo much worse.

Yes, it could have turned out a LOT worse but thank heavens, it didn't. Don't you think they were a little tough on the family to take the children into the custody of CPS? It seems like it wasn't the mom's fault. What do you think, Bonnie?

I'm willing to bet DeWees fell asleep...the story doesn't give a lot of details.

I'm not unsympathetic, honest, I know even with the most diligent parents things can happen. Maybe it's just procedure when something like this happens CPS is called in to check out the home situation before returning the children to the home. Hopefully, everything will check out and the kids will be home again soon. Sounds like they might need to childproof (locks and such) though.

Bonnie, I'm saying that on the outside looking in. However, if it were my kids the dad would probably beg the police to keep him. He would be afraid to come home.

On another note, if the police had them for 2 hours, I wonder how long they were out before they were found by the police. Yeah, hopefully this is a wake up call for dad.
