Dear baby Gabriel,

This writing to you is the hardest thing I ever had to do.
No, we don't know each other, I never cuddled you, I only saw you through the internet, the Facebook.

I don't know your parents Jessica and Joshua personally.
I came into contact with your parents through our family tree,
The vanderMeulen tree, where they have a beautiful branch in our tree.

Through the digital world, I saw that your mother in October 2018,
announced that she was pregnant.
Moments later, I saw the message come over, that you are not Gabriella
but a baby boy Gabriel.

The love in the family, I could see and feel overseas.
They welcome your arrival.
One wonderful picture after another appeared on the Facebook.
I enjoyed it as an outsider.
On April, 16 came the message that you were born.
A beautiful baby, with the full name Gabriel Michael David.
You got a leaf in our tree that day.

The most beautiful photos passed with you, your proud parents and your big
Sister Serenity. Really enjoy !

Until the day of August 8, that a very disturbing message from your mother appeared. It didn't work well with you.
From that moment on, I could only think of one thing, come on, my dear,
go for this fight, do your best!

Unfortunately, I saw the message that you had not saved it.
My heart cried, you dear Gabriel, you had a whole future
for you. This would not have been possible!

I feel the sadness of your parents and your family.
Dear darling, you are missed by so many people and by me, on the other side of the world.
The roots of our family tree originated here in The Neterlands.

Dear Gabriel, I'll make sure your leaf, in the big tree,

Jolanda van der Meulen
