The article that was written about Gaje

United States
June 4, 2007 9:42pm CST
AC asked me to write and article for them about the death of my son. I tried so hard to do it and then they rejected the article but sent me an email with it. The email stated that they would like for me to write the article as a first hand account instead of like a reporter. I did write this article in a third person wording so I rewrote the article and through tears was able to share what happened that day, with the rest of the world. I hope that you all take the time to look at it. It explains more of what happened that day. AC changed the name of the article and edited a few words for me with my permission as well as sent me a letter giving me their condolenses. The new name of the article is Oklahoma City mother recounts the death of her son. you can view it here on AC. www.associatedcontent.com/article/266965/oklahoma_city_mother_recounts_the_death.html

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am a mother of 3 and would probably die if something ever happend like this to my kids. I have read your article and I was in tears by the time I was done reading the first few paragraphs. What that lady did was not right or fair. She took your child away from you. I hope she gets what she deserves. I also hope you are able to find peace in your heart. It will be hard, but be strong and know that you have friends here for you. God Bless You!!!!

Thank you but i don't think that the lady will ever truly get what she deserves. I wanted to watch my son grow and to not have to deal with this pain. I don't know how I am going to make it. I never thought that I would find myself in this aweful situation. I can't stand this pain that I am feeling.

Rosa sweetheart I can only imagine the pain that writing this article must have caused you, on top of the pain you were already feeling! None of us can imagine how we would react if we found ourselves in your circumstances we may think we can but I don't think we can fully comprehend the feelings of pain, grief, bewilderment, loss etc that you must suffer from so badly right now! I know you feel that you cannot go on right now honey but I know you will and you know you must, both for your other children, oh how my heart breaks for them too, and for the memory of Gaje. It will be hard for you, I know that and I continue to pray for you, that you can overcome your grief and find peace in your heart and that one day you will be able to remember Gaje with a smile in your heart rather than tears! Still keeping you in my heart and prayers xxx

Ros, I cannot imagine the courage it took to write about this horrible day when you lost your son...and it is so soon. I read you article at AC and I read the news article about the judge denying bail for this woman. I can't believe that for killing your son she faces only 1 year in prison. The words I'm sorry can't begin to cover the pain I feel for you and your family and how brave I think you are for writing this. The article is excellent, the pain and love are obvious. My prayers for you and yours. Cindy

I am so, so very sorry for your loss. I cannot even imagine what kind of pain you are going through at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you struggle through such a horrible time in your life. I also pray that you receive justice. I'm glad for you that the AC has asked you to share your heartbreaking story to the world. Hopefully, this will help to put this woman behind bars for a very long time. Rest in peace, Gaje.

My tears as I read your article are a mix of pain and sorrow for your loss. I cannot imagine the courage it must have taken you to write that article. I thank you for being so brave. I hope in time that you can come to terms with your grief. I know it will take a long time. Take it a single step at a time, and don't do anything you don't feel ready to. Also know that everyone here at Mylot are behind you and keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers at this devastating time.

thank you but Gaje wasn't just my step-son, he was my son and the story of my life. I did everything around him and our other kids. Most of the articles that I had written and the blogs that I had started, are based on my children. He was always doing something that would give me an idea for something that I was working on. He was what made this world go round. I miss him. I would give anything to hold him one more time.

I have just read your article Rosa, and my tears are flowing with yours for your son Gaje. You are very brave and strong to have written it so soon afterwards. My heart goes out to you Rosa, and I hope and pray that you can come to terms with it gradually, hard as it is. Your children and your husband need you now more than ever. I cannot get it out of my head, and I will be constantly praying for you and your beautiful family. Take care honey, we are all here for you.
