Saab Magalona could not remain silent any longer.
She tells the pvblic through her blog the heartbreaking story of how she and husband Jim Bacarro lost their baby girl early February.
“On February 8, we lost our baby girl.”
“I’ve stayed silent because I think I’ve been in denial. I thought keeping it to ourselves would make this whole thing unreal. This last month, I was in and out of the ICU (intensive care unit) and I almost didn’t make it,” she wrote.
She added that her baby boy is still in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Initially, he was in critical condition but has now been improving after fighting off complications and undergoing surgery.
“Hindi pang-tao ‘yung pinagdaanan natin,” Jim reveals.
“So many things happened in the last month. There are so many people we could blame and be angry with, but each time we hold our boy, we think otherwise. He’s been fighting to be part of this world and it’s our responsibility to make it one that is forgiving — one that tries to see the best in other people,” Saab continued.
“We are taking it one day at a time, focusing on all the good things we are blessed with. I am still alive, I have a strong and loving husband, and God has shown us so many miracles through our little boy,” she said.
“Publishing this means that this whole thing is real but I can’t keep her a secret for much longer. I need to honor her. She was such a beautiful girl and we believe she gave her life for me and her twin brother.”
“This whole time, we’ve been nervous about bringing children into this scary world and in an instant, our world was turned upside down. Despite this tragedy, we have encountered so many heroes and kind people.”
“If you look hard enough, this doesn’t have to be such a scary world after all. I know we’ll make it through.”
“I know he will be looking after his apo,” she wrote, referring to the late Francis Magalona. Saab posted the Instagram photo on the ninth death anniversary of the beloved rapper.
