JACKSON, Tenn, — A Tennessee woman is getting a lot of unwanted attention due to an unusual flourish on her wedding dress, according to WREG.

Shona Carter-Brooks surprised wedding guests when she attached her one-month-old daughter to the train on her dress.

On her Facebook page Shona wrote,

“The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train.

    It wasnt the smartest choice in how to include the baby but I don’t see the baby in any harm, especially bc they said she was tied to it and there are SO MANY people there. Would I have done it, no but is she a bad mom for doing so, no. Its none of our business unless that baby is in danger which she is not. Can the mom use some education, yep.

    I see this as odd, yes. Is it the woman’s business, yes. People are going to do what they want and they are feeding off all the negative comments. They are loving the attention because that is exactly what they wanted. And you all are giving them this said attention

    First of all, piggy-backing on Jesus is cop-out. I don’t know anywhere in the scriptures where Jesus says we should do what we want when we want, pretty sure that’s counter to the message of Jesus. Second, I’d also like to point out that a little group from a little town of Topeka in Kansas also makes headline news. You might’ve heard of them.. Westborough baptist church? I’m sick of people acting like fools in the name of Jesus, people like her are the ones that give the rest of us a bad name.
