My daughters story is the same as all, a single mother trying to make it with the fathers involvement. My daughter and I, Haydon's Nana, loved him beyond anything in this world. He was always laughing and forever getting into stuff; he had more energy than any baby I have seen.
Renee was living alone and she was always trying to find that special someone to be a good daddy for Haydon and then she ran into the monster. She didn't know he was a monster, he didn't have a pitch fork or tail. He was a normal looking guy.
My daughter allowed him to stay at her house and it was only suppose to be for a week, but one day, March 9, 2010, she had to be in court as a witness in a child custody case and she left our baby with the monster; she didn't have anyone else.
She was on the phone with the monster all day texting and just keeping up with what was going on at home, never once did he say anything was wrong..and so right as she got off of the witness stand, she got a call from the EMS to meet them at the hospital, that her son had a asthma attack.
when she got to the hospital, she found out that her beautiful baby boy was dead and that it looked like he had been beaten to death. She called me and I was already on my way to the hospital; she was screaming Haydon was dead he was dead oh my god the pain and hurt and the shock and disbelief, what to do, what to do.
Our precious baby is gone and we can not go on..she is running and not accepting this; she is letting people take advantage of her and there is nothing I can do.
I can not deal with all that is going on. I have run anyone that I possibly can run out of my life. I see my baby boy running across the room, I see him playing outside, I see him in Wal mart. I don't know how to go one it just hurts too much. He destroyed my family, my life, my everything.
