A significant turning point in many people’s lives is becoming parents. Another human person needs you to be there for them at all times, and they depend entirely on you. However, not everyone is prepared for this level of accountability.

Angie Setlak was anxious when she was expecting her son, Xavier. She tried to devote all of her attention to their little son because her partner had been unfaithful.
She had imagined that all would change when the baby boy was born, but that fantasy quickly gave way to a nightmare. She got a message from her partner one day. She didn’t have much time to save their son’s life once she received the message.
The worst fear for any parent is that their small kid may suffer harm.
No matter how big or tiny your child is, as a parent you will stop at nothing to ensure their safety.
However, on rare occasions, we also learn of people who are not at all qualified to be parents.
When everything went wrong, Angie Setlak was expecting her and her boyfriend’s kid, Xavier. Her partner was not at all interested in her, even though she was counting down the seconds as her tummy continued to swell.
He was unfaithful all the time, breaking Angie’s heart over and over.
So things turned upside down again when the boy was delivered four weeks early.
“His father was unfaithful, which made our pregnancy stressful and had an impact on both the baby and my blood pressure.” However, we succeeded, and he was born perfectly healthy. The physicians, who had predicted he would remain in my womb until his due date, were taken aback when he erupted in a fit of rage. After spending 16 days in the hospital, we returned home, and I had three wonderful months at home with my child,” Angie says to Love What Matters.
One individual, nevertheless, found it difficult to adjust to the new existence.
His father and Xavier were left alone one day. Furthermore, Xavier’s father, who was expected to look after the child while mother Angie returned to her job, was unable to cope.
Angie was going to start her first job after her maternity leave when she went through something that nobody should have to go through.
She got a ton of texts throughout the day from her boyfriend complaining about how hard it was to care for their son. “I got text messages from Xavier’s dad all day saying how difficult he had it, and I told him that we would find another solution so that he did not have to take care of him alone throughout the day. She tells the website, “He had only spent a maximum of two hours alone with him while he was on parental leave, and everything had gone fine.”
The arrangement was for me to look after Xavier during the day while I worked, and for him to look after him at night while he worked. He worked evenings. My spouse kept telling me that everything would be well, even though I was really anxious about the scenario because, after all, he had raised a 10-year-old.
But everything changed when the message arrived.
He sent his girlfriend a startling text later that day in which Xavier’s father requested whether he might kill the boy. “I received a text from him on my first day back at work after taking maternity leave, asking if he could kill our child right away. I assured him I was on my way and not to do anything.
Not too long afterward, she got another message.
Xavier’s breathing stopped.
Mom Angie hurried to the hospital after the small child was taken there immediately.
The father insisted that their son had choked on milk, even though the boy had brain damage.
Angie soon found out, though.
Xavier spent two weeks in a medically induced coma to aid him. They warned his mother that he might not wake up and gradually weaned him off of his medicine. “We fought against 2 things. Trauma and the period of time his brain was devoid of oxygen. I heard anything from “he might never learn to walk, talk, or move” to “he might be blind.” But I remained confident that he will return to me,” the mother remarked. Angie was able to go home with her kid after spending 17 days in the hospital.
As a result, Xavier’s father was taken into custody on charges of abusing his kid.
Angie claims that the police believed the father had given Xavier a violent shaking that seriously injured his brain.
Xavier has had more surgeries since then and is getting stronger every day. The wonderful young Xavier is the only person in his mother Angie’s life; his father has been absent for a long time.
“I’m hoping that someone who reads our narrative would be moved to tears and understand how crucial it is to never shake a newborn. You should never, ever shake a baby. It’s so easy to avoid. My child was irreparably altered by a fit of rage.
This is such a tragic tale. How could the father of a kid commit such a horrific act? Spread the word about this to increase awareness.
