Struggling with the images today. I cannot even bear to read more than the headlines right now. My heart is shattered for little Aylan's mom, and the countless momma's who are trying desperately to keep their babies safe. Safe. I don't leave home without Tylenol and a five point harness car seat - still rear facing - for Tobin, and this momma ... I cannot imagine. I just read this and it articulated my feelings so well.
*** I just got the courage to read. It gets even worse. Aylan's 5-year-old brother and mother also drowned. Their father is all that remains. I am broken for him.
Tears roll down my face, remembering what it is like to hold a dead lifeless baby in my arms.
I am Jackie.
