What Happened at This Texas Daycare?

Stephanie Morgan and Justin Brannon, parents of two toddlers aged 17 to 20 months, were horrified to learn that a concerned passerby had discovered their children outside a local bank in December 2023. The incident raised serious questions about the level of care provided by Building Blocks Childcare Center and its owner, Steven Stearman.

The Fox 44 News feature shared more about the distressing details of the toddlers' ordeal. From being found with soaked diapers to painful grass stickers clinging to their clothes, the children's condition spoke volumes about the neglect they endured. Stephanie Morgan's emotional recounting of the events captured the heartbreak and frustration experienced by the families involved. "My heart was broken upon learning how little Building Blocks Childcare Center actually cared for my child, and further disrespected us by lying. We selected this daycare center based on its claims of providing a nurturing environment and superior childcare, which were clearly lies as well," Morgan expressed.

The news coverage also shed light on the daycare center's subsequent actions—or lack thereof. Despite the severity of the situation, Building Blocks Childcare Center failed to promptly notify the parents and resorted to dishonesty when questioned about the incident. The revelation of multiple conflicting stories further eroded trust and intensified the families' resolve to seek justice.
