She isn’t posting for story for sympathy, she is posting her story because she wants others to be aware. She doesn’t want this to happen to anyone else, and the pictures are horrifying.
On August 2, 2016, Kristian Guerrero was in the car with her husband, Fabian Guerrero-Moreno and was carrying their unborn child. The pair had just come back from having her husband’s U.S. residency approved by Immigration. She had their wedding album in the car and the pair were excited to start this new chapter in their lives.
But tragedy struck in the form of a head-on collision by a drunk driver. The vehicle crossed the center line on the highway, killing her husband and sending her to the hospital with a brain bleed forced her into premature labor. The 19-week-old infant did not survive the crash, forcing her to give birth to a still born baby. She named his Fabian James, after his father.
This is me finally being able to hold my son. This is what being in an induced labor for almost 24 hrs after surviving a car crash that killed my husband and my son looks like. All because someone thought it was okay to get wasted and drive. It’s not okay.
It IS okay to stop a friend from driving, it IS okay to take someone’s keys away from them when they’re showing signs of being drunk. And it IS okay to pick up the phone and call for a ride if you find yourself feeling a little too tipsy. It’s not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of maturity to be honest with yourself and know the consequences of driving drunk outweigh any kind of shame you might feel admitting you’re too drunk to drive.
What’s not okay is spending the rest of your life with the guilt of knowing you’ve taken someone’s life and taken someone’s life away before they even got a chance to be in this world. It’s not worth it. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t risk your freedom. You’re putting not only your life in danger but also everyone else on the road.
I could’ve died Aug 2nd but God had other plans. I’m left behind to fight this fight for my husband and my son. And I will continue to spread awareness and share this story until the day I die in hopes it prevents anyone else from feeling the pain I walk around with every day. I refuse to let my husband and my sons deaths be in vain.”
Her tragedy is raising awareness, but there is still a long way to go. She is now pursuing a career in cosmetology and refuses to give up on life. She wants to make her boys proud and now wears an infinity ring with their initials engraved on the inside. She will make them proud, she says, and counts her blessings.
I’m not paralyzed, I’m not severely injured, I can just hear him say ‘there’s no excuse.’ “
And so, she is continuing her education with the memory of her late husband and son in her heart.
