Victoria's Shoes

These baby shoes may look like an ordinary pair of dress shoes but the story behind it, it’s really meaningful for me and my family. On August 22nd, 2015 my beautiful baby niece Victoria was born. I still remember how happy and excited I was that day. I always remembered when I was younger, my older sister would always tell me “I want a baby girl when I grow up.” I was thinking about how amazing it was going to be seeing her grow everyday and taking care of her. The same day she was born, I found out she passed away and the pain I was experiencing at that moment was unexplainable. It took me and my family a while to get over the pain. These pair of shoes means so much to me and I will never going to forget my sweet little angel Victoria. She left very early but she is in a better place, remember to always appreciate your families and show them love and kindness.
