“Each year, millions of children face danger and injury because of being left in vehicles unattended.” You may be thinking, “Oh, I’d NEVER do that.” And you wouldn’t—not intentionally, anyway. But it can happen, and it did to one mom.
Barbara (the creator of Emma’s Inspirations) says, “When our daughter Emma was an infant, we m
oved into our new house. As we pulled into the driveway, we all became very excited and quickly left the car to see the house. There was so much to be done that everyone went off in different directions.
“I had assumed that my husband had Emma, and he thought that it was me who had brought her inside. Making the assumption that everything was okay, we all went about moving into our new home. In a sudden moment of panic we realized that our baby girl wasn’t even in the house. Nearly 45 minutes after we had arrived, we rushed to our car for Emma.
“The sun was high in the sky, and it was sweltering in the car. We were very lucky. I thank God that my older son had cracked open the back window on the ride up because he was carsick, or Emma may not have become the vibrant six-year-old she is today!”
This incident was a powerful motivator for the creation of a brand-new product from Emma’s Inspirations: a new car window static-cling decal sticker provides a simple reminder to the driver that a child could still be in the backseat.
Four decals adhere to the inside of the windows facing out. They are designed to be placed on the driver, passenger, and rear door windows. They great for new moms, grandparents, nannies, and babysitters.
Have a pet? Brand-new from Emma’s Inspirations comes the pet decal. Place these on your car to help remind yourself and others that pets can get extremely overheated quickly when left inside a hot car, even if the windows are open a crack.
