Informing my friends and family of Adrian’s death is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. This simple email took me 4 hours to write, typing and deleting and still not feeling perfect. I don’t know if anything ever would.

Email sent to friends and family after Adrian's Death

One week ago today at a routine check-up, I discovered my baby’s heart had stopped beating in the middle of the night.  I was 41 weeks pregnant.

Baby Adrian James Hernandez was born sleeping at 3:31pm on 30 June 2017.  He was 9lb, 0oz, and 22 inches long.  As far as the doctors can tell, he was perfect; they couldn’t find any reason.

I miss him with every piece of my heart.

If you are local to San Antonio, there will be a memorial service at 11am next Tuesday, 11 July at [location].  Visitation will be held the hour prior, from 10am-11am.

I am off of Facebook for now, but I will remain available by email.
