Mom Has a Message of Guilt After She Dropped Her Baby and Fractured His Skull

I remember when my oldest son was about 7-months-old and he was sitting in his car seat, all smiling up at me waiting for me to take him out. I gently grabbed his two tiny hands and slowly pulled him towards me, unknowingly pulling his elbow out of the socket at the same time.

I frantically rushed him to our local emergency room, where the kindest nurse assured me that it was simply an accident and that it happens “all the time.”

Still, there’s nothing like he kind of guilt a mom feels when they know their child’s pain is a direct result of their actions.

Which is why one mom is sharing her story about dropping her son and reassuring moms everywhere that we do make mistakes and accidents do happen, but that shouldn’t define you as a mother.
