The loss of a child is a pain so great that it never truly goes away. But for Olympian Bode Miller’s wife Morgan, she has found a way to take that pain and put it into action in the hopes of helping others.

“Almost one year ago, on June 10th, Nicole Hughes and I became accidental advocates for water safety when we both endured a parent’s worst nightmare…we lost our babies to drowning,” Morgan wrote on Thursday (May 23) alongside a video on Instagram showcasing photos of her daughter Emmy and Hughes’ daughter Levi.

Almost one year ago, on June 10th, @nicolehughes8 and I became accidental advocates for water safety when we both endured a parent’s worst nightmare…we lost our babies to drowning. Since then, we have partnered with the aap @healthychildrenaap along with many other incredible organizations to eliminate this preventable tragedy. In an effort to protect parents hearts and families futures from enduring one of life’s unthinkable events, we continue to spread awareness. Did you know that drowning is the NUMBER ONE cause of death for children under 5? Did you know that most drownings happen during non swim times when you think your baby is playing on the family room floor? With a holiday weekend quickly approaching, be vigilant, be aware and be a voice to spread awareness. Do not rely on the visual stimulation of water to trigger your awareness. Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! #Drowning #DrowningPrevention #WaterSafety #PoolSafety #HealthyChildren #Parents #Parenthood #Parenting #InstaParenting #ParentingTips #baby #babies #child #children #kids #toddler #toddlers #MemorialDay #HolidayWeekend

She continued, “With a holiday weekend quickly approaching, be vigilant, be aware and be a voice to spread awareness. Do not rely on the visual stimulation of water to trigger your awareness. Wishing everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!”

Imagine the grit it takes to face such a tragic moment in your life head-on, just so others could possibly learn from your mistake?

“You know, for both of our children, it was during a time when they slipped away for just seconds and out of rooms filled with people,” Hughes said in the Instagram video.

Bode and Morgan’s daughter Emeline Grier Miller drowned in a pool in the neighborhood of Coto de Caza, California. According to reports, Orange County Fire Department paramedics were quickly on the scene of the drowning and attempted to resuscitate the little girl as she was rushed to a local hospital, but it was simply too late to save her.

No matter the pain that remains in her heart, there is still a ray of hope for both Hughes and Miller. Both mothers are currently expecting another baby.
