The Aftermath | A Mother's Grief Part 4 of 4 | Shaken Baby Syndrome

How does one go on after their child is murdered? How have we lived every parents nightmare and continue growing and thriving and moving through the pain?

It's simple. No matter what way, the only way is to live.  There is no choice in whether we can or can not, at least if we want to see our children again in whatever beliefs we may have.  I have learned so much in the past 7 years, but I can assure you the most amazing thing I have learned is when I am at my lowest point, the deepest of depths, that I can do my best, I can learn the most, and I can help to reach the most people.

Is it easy? No way.  It is possible? Yes.

Surround yourself with resources to help yourself first and foremost.  Carry on your child's legacy by hosting events to help local organizations, or start your own.  Reach out and find others to Network with in comparable shoes.  Most importantly follow your heart, and all of those situations that you face, good or less than tolerable, go at them full force, and take everything in life as a learning experience.

Not everything happens for a reason.

However you can be a reason going forward that others do not have to suffer in their lives, because Shaken Baby Syndrome and Child Abuse are 100% preventable.

In Madilyne's Memory, and a personal desire to connect with families affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome, came forward to form The Shaken Baby Syndrome Support Network.  It is simply a network derived for the families, by the families affected to provide a safe place for families affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome to gather together.

It is not by any means a perfectly easy road.  You can live through it, but time is the only healer and the trials and triumphs one faces in life create a new being for you to become, and reveal lives second chances.

Thank you for reading the 4 parts to Madilyne's Legacy, and I hope you will continue to follow along!
