Mother shares tragic photo of dying daughter as she pulled the plug on her life support HD
This Photo of a Mother Sharing a Quiet Moment With Her Firstborn Before Giving Birth Is Going Viral
The phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words" has perhaps never felt more true than it does while looking at this emotional image, taken by Portland-based birth photographer Laura Paulescu, of a mother giving her firstborn a big hug goodbye before the little girl has to leave the delivery room so mom can give birth to her new sibling. The photo has recently gone viral for perfectly capturing that bittersweet feeling of welcoming your second child into the world.
While having a new baby on the way is exciting, it's hard to forget the fact that your first child will no longer be your only child anymore. It may sound obvious, but it's a change in dynamics that can be quite emotional for some mothers.
In a blog post for Baby Center, writer Melissa Willets details how seeing this compelling photo of a fellow mama giving her firstborn an emotional hug brought back memories of the moment she had to say goodbye to her daughter before heading off to be induced:
How I clutched onto my firstborn for dear life. This would be the last moment she'd be my only baby. Forever. And while I couldn't wait to welcome my new baby, my heart was breaking. I felt completely shattered inside. I didn't want to let go. Ever.
But we can only imagine the mom in the photo is assuring both herself and her firstborn that no matter what, everything will be okay. While families inevitably evolve over time, the love stays constant.
