What to Believe When Your “Mommy to the Rescue” Routine Doesn’t Work

It's easy to think it's our job to save our kids, but somebody already has that position.MOM is not synonymous with Savior.

I know it’s hard to accept the limits of our important role in our children’s lives. We hate seeing them hurt and want to rescue them from as much of it as we can.

As it was for the woman who watched her miracle child die in arms when he was just a little boy. Brought to her when he first complained of a headache, she held him on her lap until he died. He seemed fine earlier and now he’s gone. This mom couldn’t rescue her boy.

How did she respond to this moment?
