This Mother Is Sharing a Heartbreaking Photo of When She Knew Her Baby Would Die

I’ll be the first person around here to admit that I do take a lot of things in my life for granted. Honestly, I don’t really think about how lucky I am to have two healthy children and the fact that my family is complete and (most of the time) in peace. I’m sure a lot of people would agree with me that it’s the little things we take for granted.

That’s why everyone is talking about this photo of a grieving mother and the moment she knew she would lose her baby. Words cannot express the heartache and devastation a parent feels knowing that this might be the last time he or she will hold their baby in their arms. And that’s exactly what happened here. Her baby had developed a whopping cough but unfortunately, was too young to be vaccinated. And now his mother is sharing their story.
