‘On my way back to work from maternity leave, I got a text. ‘He stopped breathing. Come home.’ A moment of rage changed my baby forever.’ 3-month-old baby abused by father, mom nurses him through ‘extensive’ brain damage

“I called his father. ‘What happened?’ He didn’t have much to say. I choked down tears and made my way to the hospital. After x-rays, I was told they suspected child abuse. My baby was bleeding in his brain due to non-accidental trauma. I immediately went to his father. ‘How could this happen?!’ He just kept repeating, ‘He was choking on milk.’ I was enraged.”
