Pregnant Mom Fatally Shot Toddler Son Before Killing Herself in Rocky Mountain National Park
I woke up to this headline only a short time ago. It was not the first this year that I have seen, read and wept over. Not only for the children lost but for the mother who felt so lost that this was what she felt was the right thing to do. Post Partum Depression is a Killer.
It is so hard to not automatically jump to judgments in these cases. I am not hear to try and convince you of this mom’s innocence nor of her guilt. I am here to tell all the moms who are feeling lost. The ones hearing voices, having horrible nightmares, the ones feeling unworthy and trying to hide.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
ITS OK TO NOT BE OK
AND ITS OK TO ASK FOR HELP!
