You have a typo in {SuqmeH}, but otherwise this sentence is grammatically corect.
Now, we could discuss if a child can "acquire, obtain, get" a mother. I think not, because this sounds 
like the child has never had a mother before.

  Don't catch any bugs.

I suggest the verb {tay'} "be together", or {tlhej} "accompany, be with", to say "the baby cries to be 
with(/ to accompany its mother"
