  • "My daughters name is Vaida Rose, she just passed away at 5 months. I will tell you she was the most beautiful, didn't know I could make something as georgeous as her. Also she was smart. I always said that girl was always a step a head of me and watching me. To have to choose her being my first and only daughter or not have one at all I would relive it. My baby living here for only five months made more of a difference and lit up the faces of more people i didn't even think I could in my lifetime. So the name Vaida I will cherish forever and only sad knowing I won't be able to see what kind of women I would have raised with my two sons." Jun. 23, 2015: Report as inappropriate
