What an angel...
Jabria was born with a rare metobolic disorder, methylmalonic acidemia. I was told she would probably not survive more than 5yrs of life and in that time we would be dealing with a child who would have developmental issues..she may never walk...she would probably need a new kidney...and a new liver. Overwhelmed....I was ready and didnt care....with the face of an angel staring back at me I could conquor all things!!! It was hard at first but things got better as we learned about our child. With long sleepless nights in the hospital and endless doctor visits Jabria still managed a smile...even through all her tears. Never needed a kidney or liver transplant how lucky were we.
I Believe she touched the lives of so many...so sweet, caring and considerate to others. She never went to the store without picking out something for her big brother even if she didnt get anything for herself. She had the biggest heart of anyone Ive ever known. My baby gave the best fight she could...what a soldier...theres no way I could show weakness....how could I with this little person as strong as she was?! How dare I complain about little things. Im so thankful for the 10yrs that was given to me and my family with this angel...her leaving us was sudden and we were unprepared but I still cant forget that I wasnt even suppose to have her this long. My heart hurts that she has left me physically and I know I wont heal overnight...but her spirit lives with in me and and as long as she meets me in my dreams I will be ok.
I want to thank everyone thats been apart of Jabrias life I can tell you she loved you all whole heartedly. She loved everyone! Thank you all for being in my baby girls life showing her nothing less than kindness and loving her as you did!
I just want to give my princess the home going she deserves...so that she may rest comfortably and peacefully. We are raising money to send Jabria to Arkansas to be buried next to her grandmother...and be closer to the majority of her family.
Any amount of donation is a blessing...no amount is to small...and its always the thought that counts. Thanks for reading.
Rest easy Jabria. Mommy loves you and you will be missed!
