We finally sent out Olivia's announcement cards. Thanks to Chandra Lee again for taking such wonderful photo's of our sweet girl. I had a lot of fun taking this design and customizing it to be my own. I liked the use of the alphabet since Olivia's room has a lot of books and letters around her. I thought it suited her.
Today as I watched the news with my sleeping baby in my arms I was brought to tears. There were 3 separate cases of parents killing their children. Yes you heard me correctly. There was a father and his son who killed his teenage daughter for not dressing according to their religious beliefs. There was a case in which they discovered a young girl dead in her home. They just arrested her father and stepmother for her death. There was a woman who was in court for drowning her toddler with down syndrome in the bath. She pleaded guilty but insisted she was okay to have another child and "promised" not to do it again.
I could never understand why people did such horrible things. Now as a mother of my own child I can't even begin to imagine hurting her. I cried when I caught the skin on her thumb when I was cutting her nails. I can only pray for those who act in such strange ways and hope that their victims are safe and at peace.
