A Grieving Mother: Losing A Son To Child Abuse

Monday, April 27, 2020

Hi, my name is Emery Armstrong. I am the mother of 2 year old Nehemiah Armstrong, who was murdered on November 9, 2017. my twin boys Nehemiah and Jeremiah Armstrong, where both injured in the incident. The injuries included but not limited to cracked ribs, a split liver, torn spine, and a severely damaged pancreas. My son Nehemiah cause of death has been determined as blunt force trauma to the head, neck, and torso. The surviving twin, Jeremiah is still ongoing physical and mental trauma from this. Since this incident I haven’t been the same. I’m so lost and confused on how life works now. I am trying to pick my face up off the ground while trying to fight for justice for my babies. It has been almost three years and no one has been arrested which hurts the most because I haven’t got any closer or answers. April is child abuse awareness month; for this month I plan to tell my son’s story to as many people that will listen and learn from it. Be aware and protect our babies. My family and I mourn the death of our Nehemiah every single day. May his soul continue to Rest In Peace.
