It was probably no more than two minutes; five minutes at the most. Stacey Smith had gone into the house while her 15-month-old daughter, Ashlyn, played on the screened back porch of their Bloomingdale East home. When Smith returned to the porch, her daughter was nowhere to be found, and the porch door was standing open.
From that moment on, Smith said she can recall only flashes of what happened. She said it took weeks before she could bring herself to talk about that day five weeks ago.
“They say teens always think they’re invincible, that nothing will ever happen to them,” Smith said. “Well, we do the same thing. We think these things always happen to someone else, that it will never happen to us. Now I know it can happen to anyone.”
Stacey and Scot Smith moved into their home in August with their children, Ashlyn, Austin, 13, and Alex, 11. It is the ideal location, near Stacey’s parents and down the street from Cimino Elementary School, where she teaches autistic children. (this article can also be found online)
