...it's okay for a woman whose 18-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident to talk about her years later and have a birthday party and cake for her every year, but it's considered "morbid" when we do for our children??



I hate the double standard of it all.

Talking about that texting while driving video? I thought that when I saw it too. Though I bet some people think it was morbid that she did it too.

Yeah, I am. *sigh* Some people might have, but it's more acceptable for them than for us.

I wish I knew what kind of cake was Cora's favorite so I could have it on her birthday every year.

If it makes anyone feel any better, a woman held a surprisingly happy birthday party at the graves of her two children just a week or so after their deaths in a home invasion. The video of that party was the nail in the mom's coffin, as she killed her kids and faked the home invasion.

So that's a case where it was considered morbid for a LC. I have seen some of the video, and it was really weird, she wasn't sad at all. Ethan's 2nd birthday is in a week, and while there will be happy balloons and maybe a cupcake for Grant to eat on his behalf, there will be crying and probably a stiff drink too.

I thought she was quite sad. She was crying through most of it.

Totally agree with you brittanie. Its just like having pictures of our sleeping babies is morbid to most, but it is ok for someone that has lost a teen to have walls and walls filled with his/her photos or a bedroom that the parents leave exactly the same. As if we don't wish we could have 18 years of live photos of our children, but one photo session on the day of birth/death is all we have. So unfair how the world views things they dont understand. I guess thats why we have our "family" here on JM to help us though.
