I'm sure most of you have heard the heartbreaking story of the Kim family by now. San Francisco residents James and Kati Kim and their daughters Penelope, 4, and Sabine, 7 months, took a wrong turn down an old mining road during a family vacation in Oregon. After their car got stuck in the snow, James set out in search of help, leaving Kati and the girls in the car. Sadly, James passed away from exposure, but the rest of the family was rescued.
Kati released a statement saying that she breastfed her two daughters during their ordeal, providing them with the nourishment that ultimately saved their lives. She wants the world to know exactly how beneficial and life-saving breastfeeding relationships can be. As a result, I'm posting this here so we all keep in mind what an awesome thing breastfeeding really is. :)
