Wow!!!! We just hit our half wAy mark in two weeks!!! Your all amazing . Please keep sharing sweet Sofia's story!
I have seen Lisa and Jose a few times over last few days. Their strength is truly amazing but their love for one another is truly inspiring. Please keep sharing their story of sweet Sofia . She may have only been with us 6 short days but her sweetness will last a lifetime.
Today we had our daughter's memorial service. We are overwhelmed with how many people came to support us and celebrate Sofia's life. We have never felt so much love. Father Aaron was amazing, however, he forgot that I had something to say. So here it is...
I wanted to first thank Donnie Lima and the entire Lima family at Lima Campagna Mortuaries. My husband said I was like a crazy bride calling and texting Donnie all week.
Second, this is a letter I wrote to my sweet little Sofia. I want to share it with you.
My dearest Sofia,
Never in a million years did we ever think we would end up here. You were with us only six days and the imprint you left on all of us was as if we have known you a lifetime. Everyone who met you just wanted to be near you and those who didn't have the chance loved you as if they did.
For nine months I kept you safe inside my belly. Everyday you played tag with your dad kicking and rolling in my stomach...as he played house music just for you. He reminded you that you were going to love house music.
I can honestly say we were blown away with your beauty. At only hours old you were perfect! Your features were like a porcelain doll. Perfect lips, nose, and eyes. You looked like a three month old, not a baby that was only three hours old.
Boy were you big. It's kind of funny, those doctors said you were small, 6 and a half pounds at best. You sure showed them at eight pounds nine ounces. We could not have dreamed you would be this perfect. Today, I look at your daddy and I see you. You share the exact same profile.
I want to tell you about your daddy.
He loved you the minute the EPT test said pregnant. He came to every pre-nantal visit. He talked to you, sang to you. He advocated for you when you were born and chaos happened. It broke his heart to see you hooked up to the machines in the hospital. I'm not sure what I have done right to deserve someone who loves me with all of his heart. He never doubted our love, loves me unconditionally with no judgement. The respect he shows me your mother, would have taught you how a man is supposed to treat a woman. He is an amazing man, he would have taught you how to respect yourself through your teenage years. I do not doubt you would have wrapped him around you little finger. He adored you.
As we sit here broken-hearted with our family and friends. We rest at ease knowing our baby girl Sofia Grace is now an angel. We know you will be watching over us and forever in our hearts. I want you to know I love you with all my heart, with all that I am. I feel so lucky to call you my daughter.

Such an amazing song for sweet Sofia. We all love you! Please listen and share
Return to innocence for Sofia!! Love you
It's with a heavy heart I report Sofia has given it her all but God is in much need for a special angel After 5 days of continuous monitoring her condition has gotten worse. The brain swelling has caused her brain to start shifting and now has put pressure on her brain stem. As much as a fighter as this precious little girl her condition is causing her physical pain. Lisa and Jose have had to make the hardest decision anyone should ever have to make. They have made the decision to take Sofia off life support so she can be in peace and look down on her future brother and sisters . Lisa and Jose would like to thank everyone for being there for them durning this difficult journey. They could not have gotten through this time without you all. Please continue to hold Sofia, Lisa and Jose in your prayers.
Here's the latest update
Today Sofia had another head ultrasound we do not have the results of that's yet the probes on her head that we're measuring seizures have been removed and we can actually see how long dark curly and beautiful her hair is also the ecmo machine tubes in her neck were oozing so they gave her a few stitches in that she seems to be responding to touch in her face since the swelling has gone down so that's exciting we will keep you posted later tonight thank you for all your support and prayers
Love Sofia Lisa & Jose
Sofia's site has had 7,790 visits in only 4 days. Thank you for sharing her page! We love you Sofia, Lisa and Jose!
An update from Jose and Lisa Diaz...
Today Sofia had a slightly rougher day. Brain swelling is continuing. Her body was cooled to prevent swelling. The docs brought it back to normal. She's showing signs of pain. We are trying to keep her comfortable. Her swelling went down a little. We are so thankful for your prayers and support please continue.
We need everyone to hold Sofia, Lisa and Jose in their prayers. I'm patiently waiting for updates and will post as soon as I get any information.
Sofia's page is now available through the go fund website. Go to search and type in her name! Please share
Lisa and Jose have the most amazing friends. Thank you all for your love and support. Let's keep it going!
You are simply beautiful. You have eyes like your beautiful mother and a cute button nose like your sweet father. Your beauty is undeniable and your strength has been incredible. The day Lisa found out she was pregnant was the happiest day of her and your daddy's life. It was incredible watching Lisa bond with you as her tummy grew. Who knew you could be so loved by so many even though we had never met you! She did ultra sound after ultra sound just trying to get a glimpse of your beauty. Through these scans they discovered you had transposition of the great arteries. Lisa and Jose researched for hours on end educating themselves on what was to come. They had doctors appointments once a week at Stanford and through it all stayed confident. On Tuesday March 11, 2014 you finally decided to make your grand entrance into the world. It was such an amazing and exciting day for everyone who loves you. From the beginning your journey has been full of challenges. More complications have come to light than what we were prepared for. You've been through so much in your short little life, but you have shown strength and perserverance. Through it all your mom and dad have remained pillars of strength as well.
Please join us in the fight to support Sofia and her amazing parents Jose and Lisa Diaz. Baby Sofia was put on a machine that helps support her heart and lungs. It pumps her blood out, filters it and pumps blood back into her body. Through the filtration process it adds blood thinners into her blood stream. Baby Sofia is not strong enough to be without this machine, but in turn the machine is making her sick. It's causing problems with her other organs and bleeding in her brain. Through it all we remain positive and hopeful that she will continue to get stronger day by day, no longer needing to be on this machine.
Please help alleviate some of the stress of the medical bills. Any and all donations are greatly apppreciated. Prayers for baby Sofia! <3
