I often find myself wanting to reach into videos and pictures and just pull you out. Searching for ways to bring you back so our family is whole again. So our hearts are whole again. We miss you so much, my love. …….. Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, Aunts and Uncles, EVERYONE….Please don’t rely on the visual stimulant of water to create your awareness/sense of urgency. Understand that almost 70% of drownings occur when your children are not expected to be near the water. When you think they are in the playroom or on the sofa watching tv. Always be aware of water and place as many barriers between your child and those bodies of water as possible (locks, door alarms, pool fences). None of us are immune to this devastatingly life changing statistic. It can happen so fast and forever change your world. #drowningprevention #helpspreadawareness #knowledgeispower #stopdrowningnow

Now, Morgan, 32, is ensuring the couple’s 6-month-old son, Easton Vaughn Rek, is equipped with the “life saving skill.”

As People reports, Morgan shared video clips and photos from the lesson on her Instagram story.

On one of the posts she wrote:

I cried tears of hope watching my baby boy learn this life-saving skill… and then tears of sadness because it was all I had to do to keep my baby girl here

Further, she shared that the lessons take place Monday through Friday for only 10 minutes each day.

Morgan and Bode’s 3-year-old son Nash also had a “refresher” lesson.

Since Emeline’s death, Morgan has deemed Easton as the family’s “connection between the heavens and earth.”

In February, she wrote:

I haven’t formally introduced our little light, Easton Vaughn Rek Miller. He is so special and has brought so much healing and hope. Our baby Emmy will never be replaced but man, has this little bundle allowed us to feel a small sense of peace and in a weird way, a connection between the heavens and earth #lifeafterdeath

Further, Morgan has been spreading awareness about the danger of drowning for young children.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children from ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates.

Further, drowning is reportedly the number one cause of death for children of these ages, excluding birth defects.

Aside from Easton and Nash, Morgan is also the mother to two children from previous relationships. Those are her son Samuel and her daughter Neesyn.
