I will always love you Lysandra
Lysandra, you gave me the best three and a half days of my life, plus the 9 months I had to bond with you during pregnancy. I have faith that we'll get to pick up right where we left off, and you will get that pony I promised you. You made me a better person and the opportunity, though brief, to be a loving mom.
Lysandra passed away from SIDS when she was three and a half days old. A healthy vibrant baby who simply didn't wake up. It's a cruel reality to do everything you can for your child and take all preventative measures, and nothing could stop it.
I'm gradually focusing on what I had not on what I don't. This is the time that faith is tested and my heart and arms ache. Losing a child has been the cruelest part of my life so far.
Someday, my love, you'll be in my arms again and for now I'll hold onto our dear memories, the love you were surrounded by. Your Grandma, myself and numerous others loved you dearly.
I love you my Lysandra.
