On March 12, 2009 I nearly lost my baby girl, she was only 6yrs old when She was diagnosed with a very aggressive Brain Tumor, Grade 4 Astrocytoma, mixed with grade 3 Oligo-Glioma. She also suffered from a Brain Stem Glioma which ultimately took her sweet little life on November 27, 2010.

Mariah was put through a lot of surgeries and treatment to try to save her life. Mariah suffered a lot in her last 3 months of life, and it is very hard for me to accept the fact she's gone, & how she left.

It seems to get harder and harder every day, the pain of missing her and just wanting to hold her in my arms is overwhelming and at times unbearable!

That is a most beautiful photo of you and your daughter. What a lovely treasure to remember her by. Looks like you both had a fun day that day! My sincere condolences. My niece lost her little boy the day before he was born 4 years ago. We still think of him all the time and wonder what he would be up to and what he is up to...the pain gets to be less over time, but their short precious time on earth alters your life and stays with you forever.

feeling your pain
by: kay

I am so so sorry for the loss of your beautiful little angel. A mother who has lost her child endures so much indescribable pain and sense of emptiness that I believe we will feel for ever. Our children will be forever in our hearts. I lost my son in 2010 and still long to hold him in my arms to kiss his cheek and tell him just how much he was loved. I may not see him but I tell him everyday just how much he is missed and loved. I am thinking of you and sending you love and healing. Remember you are not on your own we are all here for each other on our journey .......that we didn't want. May your little angel rest in

I understand your pain
by: Shirley

It's been almost 7 months since my beautiful son went to Heaven. He was sick for two years, had three major surgeries and was such a trooper. He never gave up hope. He had just turned 23 when he died. It was so hard watching him suffer and I will never understand why he had to endure so much. As his mom all I could do was be there for him and pray that the nasty horrible leukemia would leave him. I would have taken it into myself if I could have. As parents, the loss of a child will forever change us. I'm not sure I like this change but I will go on step after step, breath after breath in my son's memory.

The Brave Fight
by: TrishJ

I lost my husband on December 3, 2010. He also went through several surgeries in an attempt to save his life. He was such a fighter. He wanted so badly to remain here to see his three little grandsons grow up. God had other plans.

Someone on this site taught me to not use the words "he left me." Joe never would have left any of us if he had the choice ~ just like your beautiful Mariah. She didn't leave you. She was called by a higher power. Her life was planned out from the moment she was born. Why God takes (rips from us actually) these beautiful people in our lives we can't explain. We know it hurts ~ we ache to see them and hold them one more time. My life doesn't seem worth living right now. I try to talk myself into finding joy in what remains behind but right now I just miss my husband too much. I know I will find the answers eventually but right now pain is all I feel.

Try to take one day at a time ~ that's all we can do. Talk to God ~ cry, scream, throw things if you have to. You have a right to feel angry. Your soul has been turned inside out and it hurts.

My friend told me to read the book "Talking to Heaven." It has been such a comfort to me and has renewed my complete believe that there is life after death. We will all be reunited with our loved ones some day. That doesn't ease the loneliness and pain we are suffering presently but it gives us hope. Without that we can't go on.

Be good to yourself. Talk to Mariah ~ I know she's listening. Come to this web site and write your feelings. There a lot of good loving people listening. God's blessings to you.
