Maria Tully memorial
Organized by: Carrisa Leon
My daughter Maria Tully was born on September 30, 2016. She was the most beautiful thing my husband and I had ever seen. Our first child, a beautiful, perfect, tiny angel. We loved her instantly and fiercely. We took her home at five days old. She was so sweet and funny, and had a smile that could light up the world. Her personality was so huge for such a small little girl. On the morning of January 21,2016, I woke up by myself. Not to a baby crying over the monitor. I panicked. I woke my husband and screamed that Maya hadn’t gotten up in eight hours, something she had never done before. We ran into her room. She was gone. I called 911, but they didn’t try to revive her. It was too late. We are devastated. I did everything right. She was breastfed, slept safely, was always in her car seat correctly, was always dressed appropriately for the weather, wasn’t fed solids too early, was never left to cry. She was loved. And she was still taken from us.
