The person who created the above "comic" really should have second guessed publishing it. There are a lot of baby loss mamas who take extreme offense to this. It just goes to show people will do anything for a laugh and don't take the time to consider how their actions may hurt people.
I take offense to this comic, it pretty much tells me because my boys aren't here I'm not a good mother and that pisses me off. I'm a better mother then half of the mothers who have living children. This comic says that parents who sexually and physically abuse their children, who lock them up in a closet and starve them are still good parents because their children are alive. That compared to me who fought tooth and nail for my child's life, who went on bed rest for 18 weeks, stayed in the hospital for a month, drank a gallon of water a day and made sure my baby always had someone loving on him for his short 2 1/2 days, I'm a bad mother because he died. I have a lot of problems with this. I have a lot of problems with this "comic" There is no humor in it at all. It is sickening. I take better care of my children who are in Heaven then most do of their children on earth. There are many amazing mothers out there who are great but whose children aren't alive.
On top of that, judging someone on the soul fact that they are a good mother because their children are a live is such a piece of BS. Like I said, if you abuse your child but he's still alive, then your a good parent. If you lock your child out of the house because you find them annoying but he's still alive, then your a good parent. If you leave your child in a smoldering hot car for two hours well you get your hair and nails done but he's still alive then your a good parent. What about the mothers who do everything in their power to protect and nurture their children? What about the mothers who spend every minute of the day at the bed side of their dying child? What about the mothers who always put their children before them, even if it comes at a cost to them? What about the mothers who spend every day caring for a special needs child and no matter how tired they get they continue to provide love and care because if it their child?
Just because your kid is alive is no measuring tool for how good of a mother you are. There are some really shitty mothers out there who pop out kid after kid and treat them like crap, abuse them, choose not to provide for them etc....and just because your kids simply exist in the world does not mean you are a good mother. It takes a lot more to be a good mother then your children being alive. I know many many mothers who have only heavenly children and they are much better mothers then those who have living kids.
I wasn't going to share this comic because I don't want it to be spread around but I had too. A business on facebook I was a part of posted this the other day and I am now no longer a part of that business. I will not be buying stuff from them. People REALLY need to be careful about what they post and I understand people make fun of people all the time but there is a line to cross and this is one of them.
I hope I got out what I was trying to say in an understandable matter, I'm so tired so it's off for a nap for me!
