I will never understand how someone could hurt a face like this:
Why is it that lately I have heard more stories about child abuse than I can count on one hand. So sad. I have always loved kids, their sweet spirits are ones that cannot be matched. They are so innocent and full of an unconditional love that I wish more people in this world had. They are precious beings given to you from a loving God. You are all they know. They love you with all their heart. They TRUST you to take care of them, feed them, change their diapers, keep them safe etc. Every time I see a story of a poor baby who has passed away due to their parents shaking them too hard, leaving them in a HOT car (come on people it's 115 degrees outside, would you want to be left inside a car for 40 min, absolutely not, what makes you think your child (or animal) does! Sorry that's another tangent in itself.), being hit, kicked, burned with cigarettes, oh and the newest one, a mom blew marijuana smoke in her child's mouth because the baby wouldn't stop crying (really? so sad), I just feel the worst pain. My heart aches for that little child who trusts you and loves you with everything they have. Then I think of those moms who would give ANYTHING literally ANYTHING to have a baby because they don't have the ability. I can't imagine what is going through their heads as they witness the abuse of a child that they would give anything to love. Why can't people be smarter and more caring? I can not stand hearing these stories. I know being a mother is not easy, trust me. There have been times that I could not get Kenzi to stop crying no matter what I tried, so we cried together as I sent my mom a text asking for help. No matter how it bad it gets there is someone to help you! Even if you need to put your child in their crib for a few minutes while you compose yourself. Please spread the word, children should not be abused. It just breaks my heart. What precious beings they are, they don't deserve that at all.
