Yesterday I read tragic news by someone I follow on Facebook The Progressive Parent, that her 14 month old boy had died of SIDS during the night. I still cannot get my head around it. I have been crying when nobody is around every time I think of them. I look at her previous posts about her boy, photos of him nursing sweetly on her chest, her proud words of being a nursing mother, of practising attachment parenting. She is such a strong woman as she has already experienced much grief in her life.
Today I want to light a candle for Patrick James. For a beautiful little boy who was taken so suddenly from his family. No parent should ever have to go through such torment, such utter heart breaking tragedy. My soul cannot comprehend this pain. As a mother myself now, any story related to a child's death shatters my heart into tiny pieces.
Today we grieve with you, in the memory of Pat Pat, may you rest in peace little boy.
You are a beautiful courageous mama and many a mother out there will be shedding tears for you over the next few days. Sending only love. Only love.
