We created this blog to tell the world about our beloved daughter Vitoria, who with acrania and anencephaly, lived with us for wonderful 9 months of pregnancy and exciting 2 ½ years of life outside the womb. May everyone know about her sweetness and tenderness. About her life, humanity and dignity. All the precious lessons learned with this little angel that God has sent us. It was a joy to have her with us. Vitoria still lives in our hearts and it will always be an honor to be her parents!
“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever”. Psalm 52:8
Crying, laughter and peace
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
How I miss to hold my little girl... to squeeze, to kiss, to feel her soft and perfumed hair, her cuddly cheeks and to see her naughty face of happiness to be loved!
But what a joy to know that she's okay, she has no more pain, she is free and I gave her freely into Jesus´ hands, with all my love, because I knew that, from now on, he would take care of her better than me... I knew a more fully love, a love that lets go the one you love, so that he can get well. If there is anything that can be worse than the pain of loss is the pain of seeing who we love suffer. I thank God so much because He was merciful with us and with my beloved child, because until the day before she left us she was well and happy. And when the suffering came, He picked her up and saved her.
How many beautiful memories, how much joy we lived! We were madly happy, irresponsibly crazy in love and caring for her. We surrendered ourselves without fear in this dive of no return that is being mother and father of a precious pearl of great value. This no one, ever, can take away from us, not even death. Just as nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, in Christ nothing can separate us from our beloved daughter.
It was only a long journey in which she could not take anything but her own soul and all the love she received from us. What a great party should have been made in Heaven to receive her. As in her birth, crying and laughter go together now, sadness and joy become the same thing.
It is life for who stays, and eternal life for who goes.
look at our princess...
We love you so much little princess, I hope you're running and jumping and has a super powerful skate out there, where Jesus has taken you into his arms... lol
