A mama lost her sweet little boy (you can read about it on her blog), he was just a couple months older than A, and his name, Patrick, was going to be Bram's name.
I read her blog post today. I'm triggered. I'm fuming. I'm scared. I'm confused. I'm ashamed of humanity. Someone, a reader on her blog, reported her family to CPS.
As upset as I am. I recognize it.... another version of victim blaming. Of course you report a mother, in her darkest days, in the oblivion of loss and pain, because if I'm a more perfect parent then I won't lose my child so I'm going to tell the government that you're a bad parent and make it so that I'm perfect and untouchable by tragedy.
What this says, you spineless coward. Is that you do not have a soul, you do not have a heart, you are subhuman. The fact that you even thought to do this speak volumes, but you actually CONTACTED CPS on a grieving mother who hasn't done anything beyond loving her children. Shameful. This mama is 2 weeks out from losing her baby, a baby she was still breastfeeding, and now has to prove that not only is she a good mama but she also has it insinuated that SHE'S responsible for her child's death. Dear anonymous person, you are a bad person.
And CPS persons who are assuming guilt, who have no heart, get a new career. You're not helping a family when you come in, blame their baby's death on them, and tell them they are bad parents. They're already doing that to themselves, now the threat of losing more children looms. How could you? Why would you? Shame on you.
I'd say I'm speechless but obviously I'm not. Please STOP all forms of victim blaming, and just let families mourn!
