Zoe 秀儀 (Sau Yee) Bednarczyk was born on February 2, 2020. “Zoe” means “life” in Greek, and 秀儀 represents “beauty” and “joyfulness”.
There are no words to describe the devastating pain of losing our baby girl. Zoe lived for almost 36 weeks in Joyce’s womb as our family went for walks in the forest and by the beach, breathing in the fresh mountain air and listening to waves as they crashed against the shore. She kicked as we talked and laughed as Wookiee attacked us, and she loved when Joyce ate noodles. We cannot change that Zoe physically is no longer here with us and we will never hear her laugh or cry, say her first words, or take her first steps. We can however celebrate her and continue to honor her in every way possible. We hope to make her proud.
Donations in Loving Memory of Zoe will be directed to Maternal and Newborn Health programs at BC Women’s. We are forever grateful of the care we received at BC Women’s. We love you always and forever, baby girl.
