Husband Finds Wife Asleep In Baby’s Crib, The Reason Why Will Touch Your Heart.
Babies are smarter than we give them credit for.
"They stop crying when they realize that no one is coming for them. Not in 10 minutes. Not in 4 hours, and maybe, perhaps, not ever," says Dayna. The professional photographer knew this story changed her life and the way she was going to take care of Luella.
Babies crave physical contact from their mom and dads.
Babies love to be close to their mom's heartbeat, it's what they heard in the womb for nine months. They love their mothers' scents. Hearing their voices soothes them. It is not possible to spoil or create bad habits when it comes to holding a baby.
Regardless of how sleep deprived she feels Dayna knows she must fulfill her promise.
"I literally could have picked up pieces of my heart scattered about the auditorium floor," says Dayna after she heard the story. When she got home later, Dayna promised Luella that she would always go to her.
New moms will feel tired and frustrated at times.
Dayna recognizes motherhood comes with challenges but she says its important to remember that babies need protection. Giving a crying baby a soothing hug is something infants in other parts of the world never receive.
Dayna's post has touched the heart of moms everywhere.
The new mom has received friend requests from people from all over the country. She believes her story has hit a nerve because she says, "it's helping us focus on the important role we can play in our children's lives, not being perfect, but knowing that our love is limitless."
