Baby Sebastian's last goodbye

On Saturday, November 12 Xiomara and her sister Tamara went to St. Anthony's Hospital after Xiomara's water broke. They were filled with anticipation waiting for the birth of Xiomara and Larry's son, Sebastian. 

They arrived at the hospital at 2 pm and Larry soon joined them at 4 pm, rushing from work to be by his fiance's side. 

Unfortunately, after nearly 10 hours of labor Sebastian began having complications. Because of nerve damage in Xiomara's back, it was very difficult for her to push with each contraction. Sebastian was stuck in the birth canal and went without oxygen for three minutes. The doctor said that his heart was not beating and he passed away during the labor. 

Xiomara, Larry and their family and friends are very grieved by the loss of their son Sebastian, who is Xiomara's first son and their first child together. Although his life was short, he made an impact of love on them that will last for an eternity and they dearly want to give him the goodbye his life deserves. But they need help. 

As Larry and Xiomara's friends and family, we can show them how much we love them by helping them say goodbye to their precious baby boy. They will hold a memorial service and hope to do so by November 26 so that others can say goodbye to Sebastian, as well. They would also like to provide a permanent place for him to rest. 

We know that Sebastian is with his Heavenly Father, and that is a great solace to Larry and Xiomara. They appreciate all the calls, prayers and well wishes and would greatly appreciate any monetary support so they and others can say their final goodbyes to Sebastian until they see him again one day. 

Thank you, 

Tamara Vazquez, Xiomara's twin sister
