The Sad Truth

I am reminded over and over of the trials many parents have to face. Some are due to miscarriage, NICU stays, learning disabilities, diseases and accidents. There are so many different ways children can suffer, they all can’t be mentioned specifically. Children touch so many people in different ways, which is an amazing fact. These happy, strong children light up our lives, even if we have never met them before. Facebook and Mommy Blogs are tools to spread the word of helpless families in dire need of support, financial help and encouragement. I read the awful stories of these poor young children that don’t deserve the immeasurable pain and suffering they have endured. It makes me wish I could reach out and help every single one of them. It makes me hug my son a little bit tighter, knowing I am so lucky to have him healthy.

Tripp has EB and wasn’t supposed to survive to one years old. His skin blisters with any friction and infections are continuous. At this time they are treating his pain and trying to keep him comfortable. Courtney is a single mom, taking 24/7 care of Tripp. She is an amazing woman who is strong for her child every single day. You can view their story here.

Such a sweePicture of Trippt happy baby should never have to be in so much pain. It breaks my heart!

  1. These kinds of things make me sad. I love kids and I never want to see them in pain and I commend all the parents out there who do their best to make sure the kids are alright no matter what the circumstances.

  2. OH MY GOSH! How is that even possible! How is it that this isnt on the news?! That this isnt main stream media? This is incredible. This horrible disease and infection and high , high rate of death! im astounded and worried. This poor little baby, to a child to an adult they can find a way to live, they can know Not to scratch not to roll over on to the painful side, to use lotions and creams and medicine, but this baby with breathing tubes and and I.V tubes and not knowing why his back and face hurt just crying until he falls asleep again! You have to be a believer in god to be able to make it through this un reasonable pain. Oh. My. Gosh.
