    Deputies: Children alone 2 hours while parents swam at Disney pool - OrlandoSentinel.com

    A Michigan couple left their foster children, ages 2 and 4, alone in their Walt Disney World hotel room for two hours Friday while they swam and tanned at the resort's pool, deputies said.

    Stephen Simmons, 49, and Kimberly Simmons, 41, were booked into the Orange County Jail on charges of child neglect.

    Each paid a $2,000 bond Saturday and was released from jail.

    Orange County sheriff's deputies said Kimberly Simmons, a counselor at a Michigan school, told them she has left the boy and girl unsupervised in the past. Deputies said neither foster parent seemed bothered by leaving the children alone.

    I guess the lesson of little Maddie didn't touch them. :( Sad, that people who do these things get paid for the pleasure of neglecting the children. :(

    We adopted our youngest son when he was four after 2 years of fostering him - with all the screening you have to go through how did that happen? It's just plain horrible. :unsure:

    what is so hard about taking your children to the pool with you? Some of my best memories is playing in the water with my parents. I do not get it...I just don't....
