[Editor's Note: Carrie at Amazing Grace and a Safe Haven wants you to know her daughter, Lisette Josephine. Carrie wants you to know that she existed, that she mattered to someone, that she was loved. Baby L died of malaria, and Carrie is left grieving for a daughter she never met. Go give her some support, would you? -Jenna]
As quickly as she arrived and became our daughter, she was gone.
It is with a very heavy heart that I write to let you all know that yesterday afternoon we lost another referral. And this time it is a real loss to the whole world. Another baby lost to malaria.
Our precious Baby L was to be called Lisette Josephine. She was chubby and sweet faced. She had chocolate brown eyes and a head full of hair. I imagine from her picture that she had a calm disposition and was a cuddler. But I'll never really know for sure.
I do know for certain that she was loved.
