Two days before her due date, Zariah started having serious back pains. So bad she thought she’d gone into labor with her first born baby boy who she carried for 9 healthy months.

Zariah was trolled for posting photos of her deceased baby on the internet, including one where he was laid in a small coffin. She responded, saying:

“My baby had every right to be shown off by his mother just like a baby who is alive. I shared my story not for all the miserable negative a** folk to get on my s*** but to simply show y’all how God will give you something in life that’s gonna make you or break you.

God gave me a battle many couldn’t fight and that was losing what I love most. Now the lesson I learned was to appreciate what you have while you have it because you never know when it’s going to be taken.”
