A year later

This is the story about a little girl called Anniston Jade. When she was 3 years old she was involved in a car accident.
Her story shows us how quick our entire lives can change, in the blink of an eye… I can not begin to describe how such a thing is like, how it feels like or how devastating it is. Words escape me.
Her family wished for her story to spread so that more and more will know the importance of using the correct car seats in the car.
Little Anniston Jade is a victim of the law. Because in the eyes of the law, she was fine… but the law does not favour reality and her parents bless them, didn’t know any different.
Please take the time to read her story, learn from it, educate others as I try to educate, because when I pester you all again and again about keeping your children correctly fitted in the car seats in the car, it is because I am desperately trying to prevent something like this happening to them should you ever be involved in an accident.

Anniston lost her life on January 22nd 2014, but with her body she saved lives, and her legacy will live on to help others and teach us the importance of using the correct car seats.

My thoughts go to her family and friends.

Forever Anniston Jade

On January 12, 2014, my life was forever changed by one phone call. “Baby, I had a wreck” was all I heard on the other end of the phone talking to our daughters dad. In a split second, our lives changed by a brief moment that caused the car to go into the other lane of oncoming traffic.

Anniston Jade was born on May 8, 2010. She was a beautiful little girl. We watched her grow everyday & like all parents, we had hopes and dreams for her. When she was born, Anniston had jet black hair and it was a straight as could be. As she grew older, it turned blonde and curly. She was the prettiest thing we had ever seen.
I will never forget her excitement as she opened up her presents on her 3rd birthday. A pack of panties made her the happiest little girl and…

One thought on “A year later

  1. I recently saw this tragic story on my Facebook feed. We have a booster seat in our house (it isn’t ours, my in-laws bought it for someone else’s child years ago). According to the instructions, Finley (our elder son) is an adequate weight for it. Yet, Finley would not be at all safe in that booster seat. If I didn’t know any better through reading blogs and articles, I would happily put Fin in that booster seat when he travels in the van with his dad. Thankfully we do know better, and Ian (my husband) always transfers his proper car seat into the van when he takes him anywhere. The thought of car accidents terrify me. I hope that this story prevents at least one parents from using a booster or any other inappropriate car seat, and saves a life.
