Never Ever shake a Baby!!!!

Children are supposed to be our bundle of joy, they are gift from Above. Little heaven who are the source of our un explained happiness. But why some other people can in their heartless actions damage and even took the life of these sweet little ones. Here's a sad story of Little London Marie Sherwood, a victim of SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME.. Life that she was supposed to enjoy was cut short because of a heartless and thoughtless immature action.


December 4th, 2007, Jessica Sherwood had to do something no mother should ever have to do.

At 2:29 pm Jessica made a very tough, but the right decision to take her little 3 month old daughter off life support
In memory of little London Marie, i thought id start a little forward..
Jessica had a message that i want every one to know..

This is what Jessica said:

"If anyone has kids, make sure that you keep them with you the whole time. Don't give then to anyone that you don't trust. Trust me, I thought that I trusted Josh. But now as of December 4, 2007 at 2:29 AM, she is gone. My one & only baby . & He is going to pay FOREVER, even if he gets out of jail scott free, he will be dead no matter what. & To all my friends that know London , I am very angry & upset that I lost the love of my life, my babygirl. She died on her three month birthday .
London had six fractured ribs, both of her legs were fracture, & her brain was so damaged that if she were to live she would be a vegetable
So I did what was right & what was best for her & took her off life support

That's what you call Shaken Baby Sydrome [SBS]"



For those of you who dont know what Shaken Baby Syndrome check out the facts ;

-Shaking, jerking and jolting can cause blood vessels in the head to tear or burst.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is the shaking of an infant or child by the arms, legs, or shoulders with or without impact of the head.
This trauma can result in bleeding and brain injury with no outward signs of abuse

Often frustrated caregivers feel that shaking a baby or small child is a harmless way to make the child stop crying. However, a baby's brain and blood vessels are vulnerable to whiplash motions, such as shaking, jerking, jolting, and impact.

The neck muscles of an infant or small child are weak, so the child's head is relatively heavy and the neck cannot support the stress of shaking or impact
-Shaking a very young child, with or without impact of the head, can cause irreversible brain damage, blindness, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, spinal cord injury, seizures, learning disabilities, and even death.
It is tragic that healthy, intelligent babies are suffering these disabilities simply because their caregivers don't know about the dangers associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome
An estimated 1,200 to 1,400 cases of Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) occur each year in the United States .Only 1 out of 4 babies dies of Shaken Baby Syndrome

HOWEVER, the other three babies will need ongoing medical attention for the rest of their short lifespans

If you are a mother, a father, a sister, a brother of a sweet fragile One, please take this message from my post. Children are God-given gift for us to nurture, cherish and care for them to grow and enjoy the Life the Lord has prepared for them. We need to TAKE CARE OF THEM AND NOT TO SHAKE, JOLT, AND JERK THEM OUT OF THEIR EXISTENCE!!!
