    If my child murdered an adult I'd hope there was a reason behind it, I will always love them but I think my acceptance/ forgiveness may take time and would depend on why they'd done it and if I could understand it. I know I'd kill in a heartbeat if it came down to it to protect myself or my family, we have to remember children don't think like adults so what they see as life/ death or protecting themselves/ family may not fit our views but if they honestly believed it was the only option I'd probably be more ok than If it was just a revenge thing iykwim.. Glad I'm not in this position though.. My thoughts are with that family

    ETA: ghostdancer, military is a bit different... My ex was military and some of his stories were heartbreaking. The things theyre asked to do thankful they do it though

    Sounds frightening I can't imagine.

    Particularly holding my beautiful sleeping 3 year old it really is beyond comprehension for me.

    I know in my heart I would absolutely always love him. I may not love the person he becomes - which is a horrible thought - but that's all I know.

    I don't know how I'd feel or react. Because its so far outside my reality.

    I don't want to go into too much detail obviously for privacy reasons, but there is no doubt the actions were that of the child. I can't tell you why that is the case, but rest assured there is no doubt.

    I am fairly certain that I would still love my child. I would like to think that I could forgive. However I know that I could never forget.

    I don't think anyone can say for sure one way or another. There are just too many variables. Regardless I can guarantee that I would be distraught.

    I honestly don't know how I would react. I would probably still love him on some level, but I would really struggle to understand how I raised someone who would do that.

    I hope I never have to find out how I would react or what I would do. What a horrible situation for your friends to be in.

    It would depends on the circumstances.

    Forgive - maybe not. Support - maybe not. But i dont know if i could ever stop loving one of my children.
