This has been shared onto social media from the family who lost their little boy last week in Craigavon.
On 20th January, 3 armed robbers with guns walked into our back yard, broke the glass door to get into our house. they took everything in our home freely and killed our son with his little pyjamas on.
This tragedy left me and my husband devastated and traumatised to the extent we felt like we are bad parents.
Ethan was shot and survived two surgeries before his life was ended,
First surgery was successful and when the Doctor came out to say Eth is breathing himself that was the best news I have ever received through that night..but after the second surgery, bleeding was too much, my Son had suffered severe internal injuries to the extent blood was not clotting And that leads to his death.
Doctor came and called me and my husband to come and say our last goodbyes to our son whilst the heartbeat was going down to 0 and finally dead.
I had never imagined in my whole life Eth would be dead at some point and leave us, I was always seeing myself die at a late age and leave Eth as an independent grown man..but I was wrong.. I was lying to myself.
Me and my husband we are hardly trying to cope with the situation but it really feels like a dream..we find ourselves crying all the time, we blame ourselves maybe we would have done something extra to save our son’s life..alot is going on in our minds.
This is the life that we knew and loved so much prior to that night.
Ethan was a very shy little boy, intelligent, affectionate, friendly and he had missing baby teeth and always likes to cuddle with his mom.
That was how the life of our little sweet boy was cut short, the light candle of happiness into our little family was shot to death.
Until we meet again, my Eth you will always live in my heart. Nakupenda Baba❤🙏
I have lost a child, I hear myself say and make peace within my hear, the little boy I’m standing next too has just left me alone in the midst of darkness.
Now, why did I tell all of you here? I don’t even understand myself why, but I just want you all to know that I have lost someone very special, my joy, my happiness, my friend and my protector.
I want you all to know that my child was here before.
My son left something behind which no one can see, my Son just made one person into a family, and I just want you all to know my Son did exist ❤🙏
Rest in peace little Ethan our prayers and thoughts go out to the Fikirini family
