‘You haven’t been giving her crap, you lying jerk. You’re selfish. I’m with a screaming baby.’: Woman recalls being coupled to a ‘pathological parent’ who ‘begged’ for a child

“They beg you for a child. Your pregnancy will be planned and discovering you are with child is the highlight of your relationship. Then the mask slips, and nothing is ever the same. Suddenly, the baby is a ‘trap,’ and you have ‘trapped’ them by becoming pregnant. They completely shun your child. They’re a ‘mistake.’ They regret ever having them.”

‘How is he? Does he have 10 fingers and toes?’ He replied, ‘Actually, no he doesn’t.’ They looked concerned.’: Mom surprised by son’s cleft hands diagnosis, ‘None of these ‘extra’ ultrasounds noticed my child’s hands’

“I’ve always known the ‘middle finger’ could cause a stir, but I never knew the lack of one could cause a bigger stir. When I got back to my room, they all looked concerned. The nurses ‘had never seen anything like this,’ and thought he’d be a good excuse for show and tell. I saw a beautiful, perfect baby boy, but the nurses and doctors saw something ‘different.’”

‘He was terrified he’d watch her leap off the bridge. He pushed forward, to ‘catch her feet’ if she went over the rails.’: Son saves stranger from near suicide attempt, ‘if you hear someone calling out for help, you can’t turn away’

“We couldn’t find our son anywhere. We were stunned to hear what happened in the time he’d been ‘missing.’ As he came upon the bridge, he saw an outline of a person perched on the railing with her body leaning over the top, looking down toward the raging river. Eventually, she looked back at him with a terrifying look in her eyes. ‘How can I help?,’ he asked.”

‘We understand it was accident. Are you okay?’ She shook her head up and down, and squeezed me.’: Woman who grew up in foster care unexpectedly triggered by little girl, ‘I started praying’

“They were paying with a curtain. It started off by playing hide and seek. And exactly what you guessed would happen, happened. The curtains and the rods came crashing down. Sweet-Gal looked down, shoved her face into her hands and slouched down. She peeked through her fingers, and I opened my arms. She slowly walked towards me. I turned my face and started tearing up.”

‘Why would she do this?! She’s such a pretty girl.’: Woman recounts suicide attempt after devastating breakup by swallowing bottle of Tylenol

“I’d been dating this guy. He was respectful to me. The kind of guy any mom would be thrilled to see their daughter dating. Then he broke up with me. I had to make the pain go away. I swallowed the entire bottle. I didn’t count, I just took. I called my mom to tell her what I’d just done. By the time she arrived, I was slowly drifting in and out.”

‘I would choose you and this life a million times again, even when I’m tired.’: Mom insists she’d choose her kids even when she’s grumpy, frustrated, ‘Always and forever I am yours’

“Even when I am grumpy in the morning reaching for my coffee. Even when you climb into my bed and I wish for just ONE MORE hour of rest. When it comes down to it, as I look at your sweet face asleep against your pillow…this is the most beautiful journey. I am so grateful to be right here in this moment with you.”
