Woman Noticed These Orphan Babies Don't Cry, Floored After Finding Out Why

New mom Dayna Mager often posts about her newborn child. She didn’t expect her latest update to go viral around the world. Most of her posts revolve around the hard work and exhaustion that comes from being a parent. It was her story about one of the first times she ever left her baby daughter Luella at home to go to a worship concert. What she heard there she says “literally broke” her. You could have “literally could have picked up pieces of my heart scattered about the auditorium.”

The missionary who spoke at the worship event had been visiting an orphanage in Uganda when he walked into a nursery with over a hundred cribs with babies. The scene he described was haunting. He listened in amazement at the silence of the hundred babies. The response he got when he asked his host why there was no crying is something Dayna says she “will never, ever forget. EVER. This was my "why" moment.”

The host explained to the missionary, "After about a week of them being here, and crying out for countless hours, they eventually stop when they realize no one is coming for them. They stop crying when they realize no one is coming for them. Not in 10 minutes, not in 4 hours, and maybe, perhaps, not ever.”

The story received tens of thousands of shares from moms around the world, many of whom commented about feeling absolutely shattered at the sadness of the scene described. One of the reasons some of them stated for why they were so moved is coming to the realization that a crying baby isn’t just a cause for concern for moms. It’s a blessing to have a baby whose cries you can answer with love and care. The realization that there are babies out there whose cries go unheard made a lot of the commenting moms realize the sleepless nights are worth it for the rewards of motherhood.
