19 Sep Nila’s story
I lost my daughter on 22/05/15, due to the fact that she had a heart deficiency, two weeks after I got married to my now ex-husband.
My whole world was turned upside down when I longed for a child/children for many years. My first and only child was taken away from me and it has taken me some time to regrow as a person. I don’t have any other children, as she was my child.
My princess Sophia.
And as hard as it may be even 7 years on, everything I do is for her. The hardest point for me is remembering her birth date in which she was actually stillborn due to being injected by the doctors to stop her heart beating. I felt awful at the time, and I felt it was my fault for not looking after myself more.
I just wanted my Sophia back to hold and never let go. She was mine.
