mom to 5 wonderful children. Deluca 10.11.11, Dante 2.27.09, Eva 3.17.08 (on 3.23.08 @ 2:57 AM ~ Eva went from my chest to the arms of Jesus), Mya 7.21.00 and Dominic 5.31.96. Eva , the 5th member of our family, was a true blessing from God for 5 days, 18 hrs and 10 minutes. At 13 wks of pregnancy, she was diagnosed with full Trisomy 18. And need I not forget Vinnie, father of 4 of my children, my best friend of 18 yrs, and my ROCK throughout it all. He has been nothing but supportive throughout the entire storm. I couldn't imagine going through this w/ anyone but him. Eva has changed our lives forever. I praise God for Eva and am thankful and grateful for every second we shared w/ her. I will cherish those memories forever. Until we meet again Eva. Mommy loves you!
***While in Atlanta, 6.27.08, surrounded by my "blog girls", is when I found out that we were expecting Dante. Our due date was 3.6.09, 11 short days before Eva's 1st birthday. My prayers after saying good-bye to Eva were more like begging God for new life. Then, I was still begging God…for a perfect, healthy baby that would get to come home and outlive me. I never want to bury one of my own children EVER again.
