Isaac Mwaura and his wife Nelius Mukami welcomed triplets in early 2017 but unfortunately lost two of the babies (a boy and a girl)
The couple still holds their memories and as today marks two years since they lost Mwaura junior, Mukami has penned an emotional letter remembering their late son.
After her dearest son was in the newborn intensive care unit for 69 days, Mukami, remembers that chilling call at 8am that shattered her heart.
Two years ago … I got a call at 8am from Nairobi hospital NICU asking me to rush to the hospital. I asked how my baby was doing … the nurse kept quiet for a few seconds then she told me my baby was still in critical condition but she would rather that she talks to me in Person. I knew what she meant. I knew my son was no more.
69 days of pain and suffering, with a heavy heart and overwhelming sadness I also felt some relief; that my baby wouldn’t have to go through all that suffering. I knew he was in a better place. He is forever a beautiful gift to us … We will always remember him in our hearts and in his little brother we are reminded that Gods brings no sorrow with his blessing, so we rejoice at the gift of a baby who was too beautiful for earth.
