I heard something extremely disturbing yesterday and I was wondering what your thoughts were.
A young mother left her 5 month old baby in the car after forgetting to drop the baby off at daycare. When she left work at 5pm, the baby had already died.
My first thought was, How do you forget to drop off your baby at daycare and don't you think about that baby through the course of the day?
Second; What that poor baby went through in that hot car all day.
Third; How is this young mother going to cope with the loss of her child, especially under these circumstances?
I've had many other thoughts but I'm curious to know what yours are.
I have four young children and I thank God every day that they are happy and healthy. And every morning when we pull out of the driveway, I have that split second of panic where I have to look in the rear view and count heads.
Please say a prayer for this mother and for her baby.
