A Tennessee woman named Shona Carter-Brooks is under fire for attaching her newborn baby to the train of her wedding dress, and dragging the little one down the aisle.
According to BuzzFeed, many were outraged and said Carter-Brooks should be reported to child protective services. But the bride defended her actions, saying her one-month-old daughter was "awake and well-secured" and "covered in Christ."
Read the bride's full response to her critics, which she posted via Facebook, below:
"People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!"
It's true that a woman is free to do what she wants on her wedding day, but this seems like something extremely unsafe for the child. Also, we understand that you want your child to be part of your special day, but why not just carry her securely in your arms as you walk down the aisle?
But as they saying goes, to each his own.
What do you think about this woman's decision to drag her baby down the aisle on her wedding dress?
