It is so hard to read the news everyday and not feel some kind of way. There are some parents who seem to struggle a lot, kids who are in need of help, and it’s hard not to let it all get you down. As parents, we want the best for our kids. And we want our children to have great relationships with people in their lives like their grandparents and with us, too. A mom who love them and helps them feel safe. And we hope to see them grow up happy, healthy, and full of life.
And then there are news stories that don’t make sense because they are anything but that. Stories of a dad hurting his family or a mom who hurts her kids. People who have to go through unimaginable violence. And it’s so hard to stomach.
That’s what happened to one little boy whose life has been ended too soon after his mom took his life… and the details are rough.
