Here recently Facebook banned a fellow Angel Parent, Heather Walker, from posting pictures of her son right after he was born. He didn't have long to live, so she wanted to spend that time with her son, Grayson James Walker. Her son suffered from a rare neural tube birth defect, Anencephaly. Anencephaly is where the baby is born without parts of the brain and Skull. He son didn't have long to live so her family sought out help from Now I lay me down to sleep, non profit organization. Non I lay me down to sleep sends out professional photographers to take family photos of a baby that doesn't have long to life. Heather Walker posted those pictures and Facebook Banned her. Facebook said she violated the censorship rules they have placed for their users. They are allowing "certain" types of pictures of women, and they also allow users to post photos of their loved ones in car accidents, but yet they won't allow this mother to share pictures of her son with her family and friends. Please help us get this mother back on facebook and allow her to post pictures of her son. Allow all mothers of child(ren) in heaven, to post pictures of their angels before their passing. Allow mothers to post pictures without worrying about being banned.

Angels are those Children who went to heaven before their time.

Thank you to everyone who signs this petition.

      This is such a sad story. I hoped Facebook censors would show more compassion than this. I'm posting this on my Facebook page to show my support for the Walker family.

      Banning a mother for posting pictures of her baby that just past away is not a crime. She didn't harm ANYONE in doing this. FB needs to wake up and realize that although this is a "social media" it's for people to interact on a PERSONAL level. Why should FB care as long as the pictures weren't gruesome or disturbing? Are they going to ban me next because my father past away in April and I posted pics of him and I over the years? Heaven forbid someone should exercise their FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT, throught photographs. ( A picture IS worth a thousand words)

      Freedom of speech - thats& why- she was sharing him with the world & with loved ones- r u really kidding me on this. She is a proud mom & wants to show what a blessing that baby is to her- how dare anyone stop her from posting!! People should min their own business!!

      Because all Mommy's should be able to share their little angel's with friends and family that may not live close. Some little angels are here for only a short time their pictures need be shared and loved.
