I know, I feel the exact same way when I hear similar stories. There has been a story in the news recently about a trial of a man who was accused of shaking his baby to death. It breaks my heart to think about what that baby felt while it was just asking for some love and comfort. I have a 14 month old DD, and while it has always been so hard for me to hear these stories, it has been so much harder since she was born.
Probably not a good way to deal with stuff like this, but I have had to stop watching the news. It is just too upsetting sometimes.
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed
door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
Helen Keller (1880–1968)
