  • Morgan Miller has shared a heartbreaking picture of her daughter Emmy's final moments but promises that her footprint will 'forever be left on this world'.

    Bode and Morgan Miller announced the news that every parent dreads, that their daughter Emmy had died in June after drowning in a neighbour’s swimming pool.

    Morgan gave her first interview since the tragedy earlier this month and broke down in tears as she recalled her daughter’s death.

    Speaking to the Today show in the US  in order to raise awareness about drowning, Morgan heart-wrenchingly recalled the fact that her daughter had no fear of the water.

    Bode and Morgan continue to try and raise awareness about water safety as one in four unintentional deaths in children in the US is due to drowning.

    Sharing an intimate picture from the moments just before Emmy passed away, Morgan wrote: ‘I wish I could have one more day to hold you, but until that day comes, continue to work through me and give me the strength to bring awareness, my love.’

    She continued: ‘I told you as I held you in this moment that you could still change the world, you could still move mountains. Every step we take forward is because of you and Levi. Your footprint will forever be left on this world. I love you, My baby girl.’

    The post has received over 40,000 likes and hundreds of people are praising Morgan and Bode for spreading awareness, even while they are dealing with a situation that every parents dreads.

    I often find myself wanting to reach into videos and pictures and just pull you out. Searching for ways to bring you back so our family is whole again. So our hearts are whole again. We miss you so much, my love. …….. Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, Aunts and Uncles, EVERYONE….Please don’t rely on the visual stimulant of water to create your awareness/sense of urgency. Understand that almost 70% of drownings occur when your children are not expected to be near the water. When you think they are in the playroom or on the sofa watching tv. Always be aware of water and place as many barriers between your child and those bodies of water as possible (locks, door alarms, pool fences). None of us are immune to this devastatingly life changing statistic. It can happen so fast and forever change your world. #drowningprevention #helpspreadawareness #knowledgeispower #stopdrowningnow
