It’s difficult enough for parents to find a good, affordable babysitters they trust. But even when you think you have the perfect match for your kids, they can still betray you in scary ways.
Back in April, Ashley and Christian Still of Joplin, Missouri, hired 30-year-old Lasonya Poindexter after finding the daycare provider through a babysitter’s page on Facebook. But as soon as she started watching their two kids, she proved herself completely unworthy.
Around the same time Poindexter was hired, she contacted a couple in Lincoln, Arkansas, and began making arrangements for them to adopt the Stills’ five-month-old daughter. They’d never put her up for adoption or told Poindexter that they wanted to do so.
