I stood in the doorway of Lauren’s room and just looked at her as she screamed her little lungs out. She was such a beautiful baby; she seemed so normal, so perfect – except for the constant screaming.
Why won’t she stop screaming?
I thought that if I put a pillow over Lauren’s head to quiet her, just for a minute…
I didn’t want to hurt her; I just needed her to stop screaming for a moment. Just a little moment of silence.
Please. I just need a few seconds.
