SOME BACKGROUND:

Child abuse fatalities have been a particular problem in Hampton Roads (http://hamptonroads.com/2011/03/childabuse-deaths-hold-steady-hampton-roads  ).

In addition the issue of Child abuse and neglect deaths in the US has drawn international and more national attention. There is now a move to establish a National Commission (http://www.telegram.com/article/20111216/NEWS/112169825/-1/asiseeit )  on the issue and there have been congressional hearings, See our IN SUPPORT OF CHILDREN FACEBOOK CAUSE page for related information: http://www.causes.com/causes/379221-in-support-of-children-it-s-never-ok-to-hit-a-child.
