Mom Poses with Children and Their Deceased Father to Spread Powerful Message

CINCINNATI, OH (STORYFUL/WTXF)- An Ohio mom is making waves across the internet after posting a photo of herself and her children next to her deceased partner in a coffin.

I'm sure this photo makes a lot of people uncomfortable it may even piss a few people off but the main reason I took it...

Eva Holland posted the photo online to send a powerful message.

Mike, the father to Eva's two children, died after a long battle with drugs. Earlier this week, Eva posted the last family photo of her and her kids next to Mike's body on Facebook and Instagram.

In the caption, she addressed her expectation of criticism for posting the photo and explains, "the main reason I took it was to show you the reality of addiction."

"If you don't choose recovery every single day this will be your only way out. No parent should have to bury their child and no child as young as ours should have to bury their parent," she continued," This was preventable it didn't have to happen but one wrong choice destroyed his family."
