In the early hours of April 3rd, I delivered our baby girl, Sophia Marie. She was a tiny, beautiful little girl who was the perfect mix of the two of us. My heart swelled and broke in the same instant. I have never, we have never, been through a harder experience in our life.
Our baby girl was the result of 5 in-vitro fertilization treatments. We had been trying for 2 1/2 years and thought we had finally found our happy ending. At 28 weeks and 5 days, that all changed. I had developed pre-eclampsia that caused the demise of my daughter without outwardly showing signs to my Doctor. I became a victim of a condition I had feared for years.
Today, I miss my baby. I miss Sophia with everything I have. She was my, is my, darling little girl who had a whole, full life waiting for her. She had her Daddy wrapped around her tiny finger from day 1. She had me fawning over her every movement. I honestly don’t know how I will ever recover from losing my precious little girl. Somehow I need to find peace and I hope it comes to me one day.
