We created this blog to tell the world about our beloved daughter Vitoria, who with acrania and anencephaly, lived with us for wonderful 9 months of pregnancy and exciting 2 ½ years of life outside the womb. May everyone know about her sweetness and tenderness. About her life, humanity and dignity. All the precious lessons learned with this little angel that God has sent us. It was a joy to have her with us. Vitoria still lives in our hearts and it will always be an honor to be her parents!
“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever”. Psalm 52:8
I´ve already mentioned how Vitoria has been able to make herself understood usingbody and facial language,and evenher voiceto communicate with us. She doesn´t speak English or Portuguese, but with love and sensitivity, I believe many of you can understand her too.

And this is her angry face to scare people :-)
