My heart is broken today...
I mentioned a few months back that Sophia's nanny was moving back to her country in September and yesterday was her last day.
I am heartbroken and my overwhelming sadness has taken me by surprise. I knew I would miss her but I could have never imagined I would feel like this.
I was reluctant to find someone to care for Sophia but I had to return to work. From day one, Aunt Maria (what we came to call her) gave us so much confidence in her abilities and love for our baby that I was able to go back to work without a care in the world.
She cared for my precious baby as if it were her own. She loved her, made her food, cared for her, played for her and taught her sooo many things... and for all of that, I will never be able to repay her.
Aunt Maria came into our lives and unexpectedly stole our hearts. She became our friend, aunt, mother and grandmother. She became part of our family.
This morning was the start of a new period in our lives. One without Aunt Maria and it makes me sad. I want Sophia to remember her and how much she cared for her and loved us. But she is only 13 months old and it makes me heavyhearted to know that she probably will not remember.
I miss her already and I hope that we will be able to keep intouch and have her be part of Sophia's life.
Going to keep crying now...
