Baby Njiru

Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura is celebrating the first birthday of his son Njiru.

Njiru is the remaining of the Mwaura triplets. Mukami blogged about the death of two of the children

‘I remember her beautiful lifeless body on my hands,’ sobs Mukami Mwaura after losing her daughter

Isaac wished the son a happy birthday.

“As you turn 1 year today, our son, your mum and I are very proud of you. You have fought many battles and your smile, the little milestones that you make, your energy, all these little miracles make our hearts melt with joy, appreciation and love. We miss your brother and sister who are watching over us in heaven!! Happy 1st birthday our little prince!.”

Mukami penned a blog about dreading baby Njiru’s first birthday.

Here is why.

“As I approach my son’s birthday my heart is very conflicted. It should be a day of thanksgiving, I ought to look forward to the day my baby turns 1 but I have a lot of mixed emotions. I am so proud of Njiru, for the far he has come and for the way he makes us happy; for all the joy he has brought to our lives. I can never imagine life without my precious little miracle but at the same time I am filled with sadness.”

Mukami continued, “Remembering that I delivered 3 children on 19th January 2017. My baby girl and baby boy are already gone. They were too special for earth. Today I choose to talk about my first born son Mwaura Maigua Mwaura Jr. He arrived at 10.10am weighing 1.2 kg. He was the eldest and the biggest in weight. At that time we thought he had the best chances of survival compared to the others. Mwaura Jr lived with us for 76 days; when Njeri passed on the second day we were beyond ourselves with grief…. For the longest time I did not think it was true. I knew people who had lost children but I never thought it would happen to me . Even today having taken a few months off from writing this blog I am still overcome by emotion and my eyes fill with tears as I write.”
