When I wrote that barring a miracle I would not write anything else for this blog, I was blinded by my pain. I was sad and without a place to really look to for happiness. But the truth is, for the past two weeks and two days I have seen miracles. I have seen my little Angels and all of the wonderful things that people, even perfect strangers, will do for others. In a work environment as messy as the one in which many of my friends and I work it is often easy to lose sight of what’s beautiful about humanity, but over the past two weeks I have seen many beautiful acts of humanity.
Today Robin and I held Sienna Grace and kissed her little forehead. During this time our absolutely angelic nurse, Lauren, stood by us; she cried with us. We all knew that Sienna wasn’t doing well and the fine staff at the NICU did all that they could for her, but at approximately 3:40 pm we lost her. We are not going to be bitter though we will always be sad. For the past two weeks and numerous trips to the hospital we have loved seeing her beautiful face and holding her hand.
We held her after she had passed and were able to spend priceless time just being with her and each other and we each feel eternally grateful for all of the love and support that you all have given. With that being said, we ask that you all continue to pray and love as tomorrow is a new day and we will be waking up to go be with Avery Rose as she continues her fight.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Please view the attached link for a video by Sarah McLachlan, Arms of An Angel, as this song is how we are going to remember Sienna Grace Roggenkamp.
