(Newser) – Two months ago, little Emeline Grier died in a pool accident. Now her mother, Morgan Miller—the wife of former Olympic skier Bode Miller—is making one of Emeline's final moments public with an Instagram photo, reports Fox News. The pic shows Morgan cradling the 19-month-old as she is fed oxygen in a hospital. "I wish I could have one more day to hold you, but until that day comes, continue to work through me and give me the strength to bring awareness, my love," writes Morgan in the caption. "I told you as I held you in this moment that you could still change the world, you could still move mountains."

Morgan also mentions 3-year-old Levi Hughes, another child who drowned the same day. "Every step we take forward is because of you and Levi," she writes in the caption. "Your footprint will forever be left on this world. I love you, my baby girl." In Touch Weekly notes that after Morgan blocked a previous Emeline photo to user comments on Instagram, she opened up this one. "Oh my this just shatters my heart," writes one user. Another adds, "I wish this picture was not reality for you or any parent, past or future. Her love lives in you." (See details of the drowning or Morgan's other words about the tragedy.)
