The mother of a three-year-old boy who tragically choked to death on a bouncy ball has revealed how the grieving family are relentlessly taunted by cruel trolls.
Anna Davis, from Tasmania, frantically tried to resuscitate her son Alby for 16 minutes until paramedics arrived – but he died just a week before his fourth birthday after he choked on a small ball, the size of a 50 cent piece, at his family home.
Taking to Instagram, the mother, who’s currently 39 weeks pregnant, shared one of the vicious remarks she faces on a daily basis since her toddler’s tragic death in March, shares Daily Mail.
I look at the mother in this image and she feels a little like a stranger, or perhaps someone I once knew, long ago. The mother here lived each and every day with a full, happy, content heart, enrapt with limitless love for her earthside children… and today? That mother still exists, but her daily world now knows of a heart that is both full, but also broken, where happiness and sadness are completely intertwined, where she is entirely content, but endlessly yearning. Her love for her children is just as palpable as ever, but now transcends womb, earth and spirit realms, and she will be changed, forevermore. #mothersday
One of the private messages suggested: ‘You should name your next child Choking’ alongside a laughing emoji.
She explained the family have been ignoring most of the nasty comments, but this one in particular struck a chord with her.
‘I can’t even begin to fathom the sadness and hurt this person much have experienced in their lifetime, to feel the desire to intensify our family’s heart ache for the sale of their own amusement,’ Ms Davis said.
‘Trolling comments and DM’s are now part of our daily lives, and I can usually dig deep, and find the strength to move on from such hatred, but this one impacted me deeply, and many more tears than usual have fallen today.’
‘I’ve kept you anonymous so as not to give you more of the attention you so obviously crave,’ she wrote. ‘I wish you nothing but love and happiness from here on out, in the hopes that no other grieving family may experience your bitterness.’
After The Small Folk’s very humble beginnings just over a year ago, tomorrow we embark on a brand new chapter, as we relocate our passion-business-lifeblood to an incredible, new space, presenting us with potential beyond our wildest dreams. (I’m not sure how this move also happened to coincide with us being 39 weeks pregnant, but the universe will have her way ????????) Without you, our ever-supportive, loyal community, graciously riding the ebbs and flows of life by our side, none of this would be possible. Individually we may be small folk, but collectively, this village of hearts fuses to form the biggest, boldest, brightest mosaic of love imaginable. And for this, we could never thank you enough ????

I will never understand how some people can be so cruel and nasty. Like this family haven’t been through enough.
