Oh my gosh, you guys, I am BAWLING over here!!
Can you see my eyes? Of course you can’t, because I have already cried them out and they are no longer in my face..
I came across this community on facebook: Bringing Home the Browns.
I always try to share stories that are true and very honest, because I want to set real expectations for future moms, and let current moms know they are not alone – it’s easy to get caught up in your own crazies and feel isolated from the world.. Also, pregnancy and babies isn’t always peachy and great, and that’s ok, one should be prepared for that – it makes it that much easier to try again.
But this story that I came across .. this is something I thought only happens in movies.
It’s one thing when you lose your child in pregnancy, or have to cope with a congenital issue… But what if it’s the mom that is lost? And she’s still alive, she just can’t hold her baby, sing to him, or even look at his beautiful face… Really makes all those sleepless nights, mounds of stinky diapers and a fussy wringing baby in perspective.
And so I want to share this story with you today. I really doubt there are very many others out there in the same situation. My goal for sharing is – 1)Maybe there is something we can all do to help? Maybe we all have 5 minutes a day for a prayer, or some baby things we can send over.. and 2)maybe someone knows some fantastic neurosurgeons or something? I don’t even know what we can do, really… But I would really like to try.
Long story short, while a soldier was in Afghanistan, his wife went into premature labor at 34 weeks, and then slipped into a coma. And now, months down the road, daddy is taking his 2-3 month old son every day to visit their “sleeping beauty” mommy in the hospital so that the little boy can take a nap with her =(
The little town that they live in is just fantastic, and people are taking great care of them, and helping them out!! But – even a whole town of loving neighbors can never equal up to just one mommy.. =(((((((((
Thanks for reading!
Please, pass their story on, maybe we can do something?
At least I hope this makes all of us really appreciate being there for our babies!
