Babies are bundles of joy. They symbolize new beginnings, new life and new love. Tragically, Justice Williams, 9, saw things differently. She didn’t want to be a big sister and vented that she “wanted to die” to her therapist and family members. Her baby brother is 8 months old.

On Sunday, April 7, 2013, Justice ended her short life by hanging herself in the shower of her Bronx, N.Y., home.

Tamiqua, who recently married Raymond Torres, wrote of her pregnancy on her blog. She openly shared with readers:

“We were as happy as happy good be. One day my then 8 year old, woke up and decided that she wasn’t exactly thrilled about being a big sister. I mean who could blame her, she spent the last 8 years all to herself being spoiled by everyone only having to share while in school.”

“Fast forward to August when he arrived and she was happy and reassured that although her world has forever changed she loves him more than she thought she would.

“The road my family and I traveled to get where we are now was not smooth. We faced many road bumps but over came them as a stronger family unit than I imagined us to be.”

Tamiqua found her daughter hanging from the metal shower frame with a white cloth strung around her neck. Neighbors learned of the tragedy when Tamiqua ran from her house with Justice’s lifeless body in her arms.
