This evening at 10.15 pm Esther's struggle ended. She passed away into the arms of Jesus. We knew it was coming and we were with her with some staff members. This little baby has suffered so much, even this morning we needed to put her back on IV fluids, we went to the clinic for a cannula, it took more than one hour, trying to find a vein for the cannula, they ended up putting it in her head. This evening her breathing had changed, we were holding her and prayed for her. Together we were waiting to lay her into the arms of Jesus. The last minutes were difficult, she had a real battle, but then it was over. And now? I feel peace about it, her suffering is over, she has peace now, but I feel empty, angry, sad and many other feelings more. Another precious little one has gone. Tomorrow we are going to bring the little body back to her village, where she will be buried next to her mother and her twin sister. Esther, we have loved you and cared for you, and we let you go! To the Father!
Lieve Els, woorden schieten te kort, je laatste zin is de enige en grote troost.ReplyDelete
Weetje, ik vind Esther op deze foto zo wijs kijken met haar mooie grote ogen. Mooi meisje.
