I do as well..Stories like this always bring me to tears but this one made me break down and literally sob for hours..I think it was the sweet,beautiful baby boys smile that touched me so deep.I still cannot rap my head around how she could've done this to her precious son and even a year later I break down at the thought of what he must've went through and the way he was found.I pray this beautiful baby is resting peacfully, not suffering any longer and smiling down on those who loved him!
