“And though there is a longing in my heart to have my Baby Audrey with me... to hold her and raise her together with Cassa and Via, I know and I accept that God allowed her to be with me in my womb for eight months—where we had a special bond that only she and I understand.

“There is much wisdom in what God is teaching me... and I know that, what the enemy meant for evil, God will turn around for good.

“It will take time for me to accept the things I cannot yet fully understand now... but one thing is for sure: the life Audrey had in my womb will not go in vain.

“I will be a better person even in my loss.

“I know I will appreciate Jun more and our beautiful daughters Cassa and Via.

“We will be stronger and we will be more bonded than before our loss came about.”

Habang nagsasalita si Andeng ay humahagulgol na rin si Governor Junjun, habang yakap-yakap nito ang panganay nilang anak na si Cassandra na umiiyak din.

Bahagi pa ng mensahe ni Andeng, “Our faith is being tested and I say... God, I give thanks to You in all things...

“I will not only give thanks to You in happy and good times...  I still give thanks to You even in our pain and in our suffering.

“You know what is best for my Baby Audrey.

“You know the beginning and the end, and it pleased You to give her peace and rest.

“I pray that You please give me wisdom and grace to accept things I cannot change.

“My heart is in pain but I surrender to the will of our Heavenly Father.”

ANOTHER AUDREY. Taus-puso ring nagpasalamat si Governor Junjun sa kanilang pamilya at malalapit na kaibigan.
