My heart is filled with sadness today as it was four years ago that Cristian lost his hard-fought battle with DIPG. I remember that day so well. I remember watching Cristian suffer horribly as his fever and his heart rate got so high that his heart finally gave out. I whispered in Cristian’s ear that it was ok for him to go, and he took his last breath and ascended up to Heaven. I have felt Cristian’s presence every day since. He watches over me and guides me and sends me butterflies to remind me that he is still here in spirit, even though he can’t be with me physically. I was blessed to have had him as my son and I am blessed to have him as my guardian angel until the day we meet again in the eternal. He changed my life in ways I can’t begin to describe. I am thankful every day that I am Forever Cristian’s Daddy.
