A couple of months ago I posted a photo of, what looked like, a woman sitting on top of a girl in a wheelchair. I thought it may have been a caregiver crossing the line and hoped, if that was the case, it would get back to the girl’s parents.
Well, it turns out it was actually the girls mother. Both the girl and the woman in the original photo are in the photo above. The girl’s brother posted the photo in a comment on the original article to try and convey how loving their relationship actually is.
The photo garnered a lot of negative comments and name calling which has been difficult for the son to read about his own mother. Even he admits that the photo looks bad but says that his mother has a heart condition which causes her to tire easily. He also explains that there is a wedge of some sort that comes up between the girls legs so that she is actually resting on that and not actually on top of the girl.
I still stand by the original post in as much that if it were a caregiver taking too many liberties I would have wanted it to be found by someone in the family. It is good to know that the photo just looks bad and that it’s not an indication of any sort of abuse or anything. If you’d like to read the two comments that the son posted on the original article you can find them here and here.
