Brooke's husband Chris was stunned by his wife's reaction to their baby. "You expect this happy moment of joyful hugging and stuff like that…and it's just a little quieter, much more intense—and things are just not quite right."
About a week after the baby was born, Chris broke down. "He went out to get a changing table," Brooke says, "and he came back much sooner than I thought. And he sat down and burst into tears. … He said, 'What is wrong with you? You don't sing to the baby. You don't even look at the baby.' He said, 'I was in the store and there were women who are happy to hold their children.' … He just couldn't handle seeing them and knowing what he had waiting for him at home."
