This time of year I always have so much mixed emotions 😣
25th June was the happiest day of my life as you was born 😍 we will celebrate your 15th birthday this year, though I wish you could be going out on your own with a group of friends and maybe even a girlfriend but that will not be but we will make sure you have the most fantastic day 👌 now to part that still breaks my soul even 15 years on you see 4 weeks after your birthday i left you in the care of your biological father and instead of loving and protecting you he tried to murder you 😢 at 4 weeks old he violently assaulted and shook you leaving your tiny 4 week old body with a fractured skull, broken clavicles, broken tibia and ankle, broken ribs and serious bleeding to your brain and eyes, you have been a fighter for the last 14 years and we are soon to reach the 15th year of this journey despite what your father did and how he left you a diagnosis of cerebral palsy,cortical vision impairment and learning difficulties you have never let anything stand in your way i am incredibly proud of you. "I solemnly swear to be your advocate,voice and biggest fan forever"

Today was Botox day at Gillette! Gage hasn't had Botox injections for almost 4 years but had to start up again because his legs are getting tight and causing such knee pain. He was such a trooper getting this painful procedure done. This all could have been prevented if the person who was suppose to love and protect him hadn't shaken him. Please Never Shake a Baby!

Four years ago today, we were preparing for my baby to have brain surgery. Today, he's a happy, healthy, vibrant guy. I could never explain to ya'll how blessed we are and I could never stress enough to never, never, ever, ever shake a baby.

God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors..and YOU my love are by far the strongest little warrior in the world! Our Cataleya is five years SURVIVOR STRONG today! And let me tell ya - this girl is the epitome of a SURVIVOR! Even though it is heartbreaking to watch her struggle with things that she shouldn’t have to, I can’t even begin to explain how proud I am of how far she has come and how brave she is doing it day in and day out! I thank God numerous times a day for putting his hand on this child and pulling her through that night when she so easily could’ve been taken from us at the hands of someone else! She is a miracle if I have ever seen one and I am so proud and lucky to be apart of her life and apart of her story and to call her mine! I can’t wait to see where she goes in this world 💙 #survivor #mycataleya #nevershakeababy #stopchildabuse

نشرت هالموضوع من قبل لان الاغلبيه ماكان عنده فكره عن خطورة الموضوع هذا وراح ارد اعيد نشره ضروري تشوفون الهاشتاغات هذي فيها صور ضحايا المتلازم اللي عاش منها صار ( معاق ) واللي مات من نزيف المخ ( الله يحمي عيالنا من كل شر )
#shakenbabysyndrome
#nevershakeababy
#متلازمة_هز_الرضيع
#متلازمة_هز_الطفل ‎دخلو الهاشتاق وشوفوالضحايا لاتهزونهم وتسكتونهم بالهز العنيف
الهز هنا يعني الهز بعنف وليس الهز الخفيف لتهدئة الطفل وتنويمه ‎وفى هذه المتلازمة تتعرض خلايا المخ للضمور، مما يحول دون وصول الأكسجين الكافي إلى المخ. وتعتبر متلازمة هز الطفل الرضيع من أنماط الإساءة إلى الأطفال والتي ينجم عنها تلف دائم فى خلايا المخ أو موت الطفل. ‎يمكن تجنب إصابة الطفل بهذه الحالة، بمعرفة الآباء مساوئها حتى لا يتعرض طفلهم إلى الأذى وإلى الإعاقة الدائمة. * أعراض متلازمة هز الطفل:
‎من أعراض وعلامات متلازمة هز الرضيع التالى:
‎- استثارة حادة.
‎- صعوبة البقاء فى حالة وعى واستيقاظ.
‎- اضطرابات فى التنفس.
‎- ضعف التغذية أو قبول الطعام.
‎- رعشة.
‎- قيء.
‎- جلد شاحب أو مائل إلى الزرقة.
‎- تشنجات.
‎- شلل.
‎- الغيبوبة.
‎من الأعراض الأخرى التي لا تظهر خارجياً:
‎- نزيف بالمخ وداخل العين.
‎- ضمور الحبل الشوكى والرقبة.
‎- كسور فى الضلوع والجمجمة والعظم.
‎- علامات تدل على تعرض الطفل لإساءة سابقة.
‎- مع الحالات البسيطة لهذه المتلازمة يظهر الطفل وكأنه فى حالته الطبيعية، لكنه بمرور الوقت تبدو عليه علامات المشاكل الصحية أو فى التعلم أو السلوك. * الأسباب:
‎الطفل الرضيع لديه عضلات ضعيفة بالرقبة، ويظهر ذلك فى صراعه بحمل رأسه الثقيلة، وإذا تم هز الطفل بعنف فإن خلايا المخ الهشة تتحرك إلى الأمام وإلى الخلف داخل الجمجمة وهذا يؤدى إلى حدوث الكدمات والتورم والنزيف. وعادة ما يصاب الطفل "بمتلازمة هز الرضيع" عندما يقوم الآباء أو مقدمو الرعاية بهز الطفل بعنف عدة مرات نتيجة للغضب منه، أو لعدم توقف الطفل عن البكاء الذي يثير ثورة الآباء .. لكن لا يوجد على الإطلاق ما يبرر قيام الآباء بذلك.
‎ولا يكون السبب وراء إصابة الطفل بهذه المتلازمة السقوط أو بسبب اللعب العنيف. * عوامل الخطورة:
‎لابد وأن يكون الآباء ومقدمو الرعاية على دراية كاملة بالعوامل التي تزيد من مخاطر تعرض الطفل الرضيع لهذه المتلازمة، ومن بين هذه العوامل:
‎- الضغوط.
‎- العنف المنزلي.
‎- عدم التوقع المنطقي من جانب الأهل لاستجابات الطفل.
‎- إدمان الكحوليات أو الاعتماد على العقاقير الإدمانية الأخرى.
‎عدم استقرار الأحوال العائلية.
‎- الاكتئاب.

Can't believe it. My babies graduated high school on Thursday! I am so proud, yet I feel so old at the same time! I am so proud of what these two amazing boys have accomplished.
Seeing Gage walk to get his diploma after being told he would probably never walk or talk after his brain injury was the most amazing thing EVER!
Seeing Connor accept his diploma knowing how hard he worked to overcome the challenges he faced from his brain injury, all the while keeping am eye out for his twin brother to make sure he never felt left behind, makes me so proud!
The world awaits boys!

It may seem like your baby cries more than others, but remember, all babies cry. Early infant crying can last as long as 4 months before decreasing.
It is OKAY to get frustrated. It is OKAY to put your baby down and walk away, but NEVER, Shake A Baby!

As baby’s brain slams against the skull, tissues tear and bleeding in the rain can occur.
The areas of a baby’s brains that are affected include: *Back of the head (vision)*
*Front of the head (creative thinking, memory, emotions)*
*Middle of the head (movement, speech, cognitive abilities)*

WE ARE GETTING A VOTE ON THE SENATE FLOOR! Meeting went amazing. Senator Kowall was so kind and told us before we even said 2 words that he wanted to put these up for a vote. The goal is to schedule a vote before they break for summer, which I was not expecting. Senator Kowall and his chief of staff are going to speak with the Sargent of the Michigan State Police because the MSP have been a big reason these bills are being held up. But Sen. Kowall and his staff states this is “no brainer legislation” and he said he wants to make sure when this gets on the Governor’s desk that the Governor will sign it :) We still have to get it passed on the House side, but I’m hoping once the Senate passes it, the House will follow suit. Thank you all for your unconditional prayers and support. Today is a huge victory for the future safety and well being of our children. #WyattsLaw #NoExcuseforChildAbuse #NeverShakeABaby #momsonamission #SB261 #SB262 #SB263

Wyatt and TJ smiling and having fun together today. What you would never know is that both these beautiful and strong boys were abused by the same evil monster, Rachel Edwards. Rachel beat, tortured, and drugged TJ. Got probation and fines. Rachel shook and almost murdered Wyatt and got 33 months-10 years. Wyatt deals with the lifelong physical ramifications because of his abuse, while TJ deals with the lifelong mental and emotional ramifications of his abuse. The system failed both these boys. And what’s even harder to wrap your head around is their abuser will be up yet again for parole. Again, this is why Wyatt’s Law is so needed. We need to know who these abusers are so we can keep our children away from them. #wyattslaw #noexcuseforchildabuse #nevershakeababy #aprilischildabuseawarenessandpreventionmonth #childabusesurvivors

Today is the last day of April, which does mean the last day of child abuse awareness/prevention month (even though every day should be), so if you still would like to do something for it, please consider downloading the song I wrote with @feralground called “Dear Mr. Politician” about Wyatt’s story and my fight to protect children every where. The iTunes link is in my bio, but you can also find the song on other music sharing programs such as Spotify. All proceeds from the sale of this song are going to a local non profit called The Care House of Macomb. They provide services to abused children and their non offending family members at no cost. #wyattslaw #dearmrpolitician #noexcuseforchildabuse #nevershakeababy #aprilischildabuseawarenessandpreventionmonth

Wyatt on the Michigan State Capitol steps today. Wyatt representing every vulnerable and innocent child in this state and country. How can we live in the greatest country in the world, yet the United States has one of the worst records among industrialized nations: losing on average between four and seven children every day to child neglect and child abuse. Michigan had 39,552 confirmed cases of child abuse in 2016 (most updated year of data). Highest we’ve had yet. This epidemic must be stopped. Legislators: Time to move these bills! #wyattslaw #noexcuseforchildabuse #nevershakeababy #aprilischildabuseawarenessandpreventionmonth #michiganlegislature #lansing #statecapitol #Unitedstates #HB4384 #HB4385 #HB4386 #SB261 #SB262 #SB263

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Be a voice for children, be a voice for the ones who don’t have their own yet! Who are too scared, too used to the abuse to know the difference! Don’t think you should remain quiet for the abuser to stay comfortable! If you see something, if you hear something, if you feel something - SAY SOMETHING! ✋🏽💙 #mycataleya #nevershakeababy #stopchildabuse #standup #makachoice

Headed back up to Lansing tomorrow! Going up there not only to lobby for Wyatt’s Law, but also to acknowledge April being child abuse awareness/prevention month. I spent the evening working on mini packets for the legislators I visit tomorrow. I have taken the time to condense what Wyatt’s Law is, add some statistics and facts, and then also provide and HIGHLIGHT the Michigan Kid Count from the last 3 years showing the consistent increase in confirmed child abuse cases in this state. Hope they realize I’m no going away....ever lol! I will continue to put these facts in front of their faces. I will never stop fighting for those who don’t have a voice. #wyattslaw #noexcuseforchildabuse #nevershakeababy #aprilischildabuseawarenessandpreventionmonth #michiganlegislature #lansing #statecapitol #HB4384 #HB4385 #HB4386 #SB261 #SB262 #SB263

If you have children, babysit children or work with children please join us in TAKING THE PLEDGE!

This most commonly happens to children from 0 to 5 years of age! PLEASE JOIN US IN TAKING THE PLEDGE TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING TO OTHER INNOCENT CHILDREN!

Only a few seconds of shaking a baby can cause a lifetime of challenges or death for that baby. It is okay to let baby cry.... put the baby in a safe place and take a break or ask someone for help. Please Never Shake A Baby!

Gage was shaken at 10 weeks old and he continues to suffer the daily struggles of living with a traumatic brain injury. This could have been 100% preventable. Remember we also never thought this would happen in our family. PLEASE NEVER SHAKE A BABY!

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month and The Kempe Foundation was such a valuable resource to our family during some pretty tough times when Hunter was hurt. 😢

Dr Sirotnak treated Hunter from the moment he was admitted to The Children’s Hospital here in Denver. He is such a gentle, kind, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable Dr and friend. We are forever grateful for him and all the amazing people who chose a career to help those without a voice and their families. It’s crazy to think we have know him for almost 20 years. Him and his team are Angels on earth.
The key to prevention is education,
spread the word it can save a child’s life. ❤️ #NeverShakeABaby #ChildAbusePreventionMonth #TheKempeFoundation #KeepOurChildrenSafe #EducationIsTheKeyToPrevention

My beautiful baby had an MRI under sedation today. The first time she had an MRI with sedation was right after she had a 15 minute seizure because she was shaken. Unfortunately she was unable to wake up and breath on her own after that and had to be intubated. God was with us today and she was able to wake up with no complications, we are just praying that she recovers soon and that her MRI doesn't show anything bad 🙏🏻 We love you Scarlett, I'm sorry you have to go through so much at such a short age. #nevershakeababy #babyshakensyndrome
