Heather Walker's son Grayson James lived only eight hours. He had a rare birth defect in which his skull did not completely form.
A Tennessee woman was temporarily banned from Facebook...for posting pictures of her newborn. Heather Walker’s son, Grayson James Walker, was born with a birth defect -- and Facebook pulled her photos of her newborn son down, saying the content violated the site’s community standards. As WBRC tells us, that decision didn’t sit well with Walker. “Thursday, Walker was put on a 24-hour-ban after she and her facebook friends decided to re-post Grayson’s photos in protest.” “If you don’t want to see it, you don’t have to look at it. I want to share this with people just like anyone else wants to share their baby, their child’s life.” Grayson James lived only eight hours. KATV explains where the pictures came from. “This is James Walker, parts of his brain and skull didn’t form. He was photographed by Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep a foundation that specializes in capturing the only moments a family will have with a newborn.” According to the Daily Mail, Facebook has yet to address the incident or provide any kind of statement. “According to Facebook's community standards page, there are nine types of content that may be deemed offensive and removed: Violence and Threats, Self-Harm, Bullying and Harassment, Hate Speech, Graphic Violence, Nudity and Pornography, Identity and Privacy, Intellectual Property and Phishing and Spam Heather said she has no idea which category the picture of her child without the hat falls under...” Meanwhile, Walker continues to share her experiences with and without Grayson on her online blog. On May 16, she wrote. “There is a place in my heart that is missing. I don't want Grayson to be forgotten. … he was perfect and fought for 8 hours. He was so beautiful and sweet.”
