October 2022

We are Dessireé and Sergio. In 2022 our baby girl Abby passed away at 26 weeks of gestation. We write her story so others can meet her and keep her memory alive. We hope her story helps other parents not to feel alone, either if they are struggling with fertility or the loss of a child.


I Am Here
Please don’t cry, I am here. Just look around, I am very near.
Does not have to be a secret
The dead don’t need anything. The rest of us could use some company.
Grief comes in waves
As for grief, you’ll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you’re drowning, with wreckage all around you
How does it feel to lose a child?
Since I lost our daughter Abby, many well intentioned people have asked me how I am or how I feel

There’s no greater actress than a grieving mother
