Sometimes waking up suddenly while sobbing after a lack of sleep and horrible nightmares that have anything and everything to do with your dead child really freaking sucks… please forgive me ahead of time for my vapid responses to life today. I will not be able to control them. Take it up with my emotions and mind. Be prepared for them to go from anger and then to tears at the drop of a hat. Just warning you. You are doing this at your own risk.
“Mommy, she’s my baby…” Her immediate response to acknowledging that this was her baby was to hug her and cherish her. As we do with our children. Photo circa Nov 2010. Katherine was 1.5 years of age. Ready to take on the world. Yet clueless to her fate. We all were.
