Saying Goodbye I’m so sorry to tell you that we’ve lost the baby. This has been the greatest heartbreak of our lives but we’re staying closer than ever as a family to get through this and heal. Even through the worst pain we count our blessings and trust that she is in God’s arms now. We named her Sophia.
I’m so sorry baby that I didn’t write this to you sooner. I am your mommy. It breaks my heart that we’ll never meet in this life here on earth, but I have no doubt in my heart that you’ll be waiting for us, your family that will forever love and miss you, in heaven. We named you Sophia, a name that means Wisdom. There’s so much about you we’ll never know but you’ve opened our eyes and changed our hearts and given us new perspective like nothing else would ever be able to and we are forever grateful to you for that. You are our daughter.
God made you the way he did for a reason that was not a mistake. Maybe you were always meant to be an angel, that’s what I choose to believe. I’m sad I’ll never know the sound of your footsteps running through this house, I’m sad we’ll never get to include you in our family Christmas photos, but you have such a special, big place in our hearts forever and know we’ll be together again.
Your sister’s name is Alessandra and she has been so excited for your arrival. It hurts my heart that we’ll never see you Santiago sisters in action.. And your papi, all he wants is to hold you, his little girl. He’s a girl dad, meant to raise strong, confident daughters. Just know you were made of love. So much love.
We know how extraordinarily blessed we are and God has shown so much grace in our lives and on our family. So with the blessings we take some pain, the pain of being separated from you too soon, but we trust in HIM and his plan and he has something special in mind for you. Our sweet Sophia. We will love you forever. I’ll dream of what it would’ve been like to hold you, to smell your sweet baby smell. But instead the only kind thing I can do for you now is let you go. I love you I love you I love you Sophia. You were too special for this world. Goodbye my little love.
Thank you for surrounding us in love during this time. The messages, the meals, the flowers, we appreciate all of it. I’m so saddened to know how many of you, thousands of you that have reached out, that have experienced a similar loss, or two, or three. So many angel babies in heaven. But hearing your stories and seeing your strength has given us so much hope. Thank you 🤍
Missing you Sophia.
