The media reported about the car accident that changed Ashley's life forever. The mourning mother discovered accusatory comments from many readers on the internet. The people accused her of being a bad mother, because she didn't notice that Titus had unbuckled his seatbelt. Ashley was hurt to her core. "I wanted to punch them. I wanted to tell them how close we were and how much I tried to fight to save his life."

But Ashley didn't want to justify her actions. Instead she gave other parents an important message. "Hold your babies tight. (...) Take every hug and kiss they bring you - even the twenty fifth one they use just to get out of bed at night. And really squeeze them.  ( ... ) Tell them you love them. But look in their eyes and say it like you mean it. Tell them they can do anything - anything they set their mind to."

Ashley will never able to do any of these things  with her beloved Titus again. But she is  trying to stay strong and  be there for her other children. She hopes to encourage many parents to think about the way they handle  their children. Parents should  really cherish every second they have with their children, even when the little ones are sometimes  hard work  and don't  always behave the way we  would like them to.
