I was almost going to pass on this story because I can’t stomach a lot of the stories sent to me however in this tragedy comes wisdom.
27-year-old Christopher Storbakken of Indianapolis has been charged with murder in the death of his one-year-old daughter Fowler Harper. Storbakken at first claimed he dropped her while removing her from the crib but the autopsy showed that Fowler died from blunt force trauma and had injuries to her stomach, leg, arm and hand. Police say that Storbakken eventually admitted to striking his daughter because she wouldn’t stop crying. Unfortunately these types of death have become all too familiar to us.
However a family member has some great advice, which may be considered common sense to some but not by all, about what the constant crying may mean…
“I was one of them,” Rehme said. “I had a child that it took months for me to realize she was allergic to dairy, so I had to deal with that. The thing is, take a break; ask for help.”
The crying is not your fault and there is no weakness in asking someone for help.
Thanks to AJ for the tip.
