A bride straps her newborn to her wedding gown in some strange effort to include her baby in her big day. According to Yahoo! News, Shona Carter-Brooks didn't do something "normal," however. The bride actually strapped her one-month-old daughter to the train of her gown... and basically dragged her down the aisle.

Carter-Brooks took to Facebook to respond to the backlash:

"Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! 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. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!!"

If a bride straps a newborn to her gown, one would think it would be to the front of her dress so that the baby could be close to mom (and dad) and be secure. No one expected to see the infant being dragged up the aisle on the floor! While plenty of people have expressed their disapproval, others actually defended Carter-Brooks.

Eedding coordinator Kaye Jordan said:

"It indicates the dedication of her mother (and father) toward caring for her child and family... A GOOD mother takes her child wherever she goes, even down the aisle."

The photo of the bride with the newborn strapped to her gown has caused many people to ask child protective services to get involved. So far, there hasn't been any reports of a CPS investigation. What's your take on this story?
