My name is Jona and I'm a first-time mother to beautiful baby girl named Maria Amanda. I gave birth last January 16, 2016 and I was the happiest person in the world when I saw her. I delivered her prematurely but I was assured that she's fine and just need some extra care in NICU. Everything was going well until 1 day after my delivery when I learned that my baby is in critical condition and passed 2 days later. She died of Cardio Pulmonary Arrest secondary to end organ failure which the underlying cause was Respiratory Distress Syndrome. January 19, 2016, 3 days after I gave birth, my baby joined our Creator in heaven. She went back to being an angel again. The pain was like no other but there were more issues and things that needed to be taken care of like our hospital bills and my baby's funeral so I needed to get up and act strong. Our hospital bill went up to 8,369 dollars (385,000 Pesos) and producing that amount of money is one of the most challenging things I've ever experience in my life. We have to pay the hospital in full not only for my discharge but also to have our baby with us so we can lay her to rest.
Every mothers nightmare is burying her child and I wouldn't wish for anyone, not even my enemy, to feel that kind of agony. We laid our baby to rest in a public cemetery outside our city. It was a semi-public cemetery but we were financially drained so even if we want a better memorial place for my child we just cannot afford it. And now, I don't wish for anything in the world but to have the means to buy a nice lawn lot so we can transfer my daughter, my one and only child. I'm here to take a chance and there's nothing to lose if I give it a try. Maybe some people will not understand why I need to transfer her to another cemetery. Even if she's gone I still want, if not the best, atleast something better for her. Now I know it's true when they say that love, a mother's love, goes beyond the grave. Thank you and may the Almighty God bless us always.
