How to use "Tearful" in context?

Tears flow down my face as I think about my daughter. She was only four when she was taken from us, taken from the only family she had left. She was swept away in an instant and I never thought I'd see her again. Until I saw her picture in the paper, crying and holding up her little baby. I knew she was all right. I could tell from the look in her eyes. But I can't help but think about what could have been. What if she was with us when it happened? What would have happened to her then?
