One year ago, James and his wife Yesenia Aguilar did an adorable maternity photo session. He recreated the pictures to give a tribute to her wife, and to thank her for the lovely gift she gave him. 37 years old James Alvarez paid a heartwarming tribute to his deceased wife by recreated their maternity photoshoot pictures. He did this on her daughter Adalyn’s first birthday. Adalyn was wearing a pink outfit similar to the one her mother wore for her maternity photo session.
James posted the photos he took with his daughter with the caption, “It’s been a tough journey, but I did it with my head held high. I try to be the best father I could be for my daughter. I want to make my wife proud. Adalyn, I know if your mommy was here, she would have been the happiest person alive. She would be so excited to celebrate your birthday that’s why I’m making sure I fulfill her wishes and wish her the happiest birthday ever baby. Your mommy and daddy love you.”
James lost his wife in a car accident. A car hit Yesenia when James and Yesenia were out for a walk. She was 35 weeks pregnant at that time. The Surgeons performed an immediate C-section to save the infant. The baby survived, but Yesenia could not make it.
