Our story is one that is hard to tell over and over. For those who know about the loss we suffered, it was one that no parent imagines to ever go through. For those who don't know, our son, Mark Anthony II passed away at 16 days old in the NICU.
I was blessed to come in contact with Connie Gomez who runs Houston Latina Bloggers. We were able to connect and I instantly put myself in this amazing group of women. They support, and share with one another. I love that! Being able to be apart of something and share my blog and talents is a great way for me to feel reconnected. Especially through this time of being confined for our preemies health.
Through Houston Latina Bloggers I was connected to an amazing photographer, Anel. She owns Tender Nest Portraits, and captures beautiful moments. Anel reached out to me because of how touched she was by our story. She offered to capture moments of our family but also honor our son who passed away last year in July.
Anel...I want to personally thank you for that. The pictures you captured are beautiful and I love that his tiny bear was present with us. Some may not know the sentiment behind that particular bear but for us, it holds a key value. A memory. A moment in time where we never want to re-live but we will always remember.
I wanted to share all of the beautiful pictures with everyone, and also share the true story we were capturing..LIFE. Our son may not be with us anymore but we live on, and we make sure to never forget him. We are thankful for the love we share as a family and the strength that has grown between my husband and I. We aren't perfect but we love each other more than anything..Mark is my soulmate and I'm so blessed to see him be an amazing father to our children. Our girls are growing daily and Selena has proven her strength and amazes us with her progress. Emma is the most rambunctious child and has a playful spirit that I hope never fades.
