Most parents hear the news stories about these hot car deaths and immediately think, “I could never do that.” Although that may be true, these accidents happen way too often.

One family is choosing to speak out about their daughter, Lily, whose father forgot her in the back of his car.

On the day 5-month-old Lily died, her dad forgot to drop her off at day care. He drove straight to work without realizing, until he went to pick her up at the end of the day. The baby’s mother, who has forgiven her husband for his thoughtless mistake, told KHOU about that life-changing day.

Normally, I take the older two kids to school, but today, he was trying to bless me and took all three of them. . . . When he walked up to the [day care] door, they just looked at him and said, ‘She hasn’t been here all day.’ There were 15 seconds of ‘How could he do that?’ Immediately instant forgiveness washed over me.”

Lily’s mom has been writing letters to other parents who have gone through this same nightmare and has shared her story on camera. “If I can help one family, one child . . . ” she said. “It’s important for people to know that it happens to good people.”
