Our Daughter Saved Us – for Those Parents Who’ve Lost a Baby

Our Daughter Saved Us - for Those Parents Who've Lost a Baby

I am sharing this for those parents who’ve lost their baby. And why I am sharing is because I want them to not lose hope. Everything happens for a reason.

Pregnancy is the most beautiful time for every parent. We found ourselves lucky once we got to know that we were going to be blessed with twins. This was the first time we were going through this journey and trust me, it was a fairytale journey.

We were on cloud nine, even when the journey got tough. On the day of my delivery, we were so excited. We wished for healthy babies, as everything was perfect as per the scans.

We went to the labour room and with God’s grace, we were blessed with one girl and one boy. All our family members were very happy. The doctor kept them under observation for a day. That night I was excited to see them.

The next day, they gave us our daughter but they asked to keep our boy for one more day. I got very tensed wondering what had happened to our boy. Actually, he hadn’t passed the first stool. One more day passed, after which he had an X-ray, which revealed that there was a block in his intestines. The doctor called for immediate surgery. He underwent surgery, post which his downfall began. We don’t know the reason why, but he contracted an infection. On the day of his surgery he recovered, but the next day, he began suffering from many diseases. They kept him in the ICU. It was very tough to see my baby in that condition – could you imagine, I saw him on the 6th day after delivery! I remember his smile when I went there to see him and called out his name. And the next day, early in the morning, he left us.

In the initial stage of parenthood, we had mixed feelings. I went into depression but my daughter saved me.

This message is especially for those parents who have faced this situation. I suggest you leave some things to destiny. I know it’s a very difficult phase which I’ve faced but yes, we have our daughter. But losing a child is the worst feeling. You have to move on, wait for some time, and again plan for a baby. Good luck and take care.
