Baby Child 15

MaKaya R. Dixon

June 15, 2015 ~ May 4, 2020 (age 4)


MaKaya Renee Dixon was born June 15, 2015, to Amanda and Roberto Dixon,
Sr. in Saint Louis Missouri. MaKaya was born after her father and I suffered
through a late term miscarriage and one stillbirth. Positioning her as my Angel
Baby, and she truly was. She was a true blessing that I prayed several years for;
God answered my prayers and gave her to me when I needed her the most. I
went through so much to bring her into this world but would gladly do it all
over again. The first moment I held her in my arms, I felt a bond that could
never be broken or replaced and will continue on for the rest of my days. She
became my best friend, she always worried about me and wanted me to be a
better person. We talked about eating right and exercising, so, every day, she
would say, “Mommy, we need to exercise.” She always knew when I needed
encouragement and love. She would just walk up to me out of nowhere, hug
and kiss me, and say, “Mommy, I love you.” When she was upset or sleepy,
she would always say, “Mommy, I want you.” She loved me but was the true
definition of a daddy’s girl. She had him wrapped around her chubby, little
fingers and could do no wrong in his eyes, no matter how much she was acting
out. She knew he always had some type of candy or snack for her when he came
home. She was a night owl, like her dad, and would stay up all night with him
if he would let her. I remember waking up around 2 am. and she and her dad
were downstairs playing kickball in my house. She was such a good big sister,
always looking out for her baby brother. She would always say, “Come on,
Burdy,” and he would follow right behind her, no telling what they were going
to do. They fought like cats and dogs, but they were inseparable. When ever
they woke up, if they did not see the other one, they immediately asked where
they were. MaKaya loved and adored her big sister Gabby who called “Sister”

She always wanted to be around her, cooking or simply watching you tube
videos together for hours.

MaKaya’s favorite colors were pink and purple. She loved helping people,
especially Mommy. She enjoyed dancing and watching Youtube videos,
including music videos, people playing with slime, or magnets. MaKaya loved
rapping and singing and frequently came up with her own lyrics. She was always
very happy and smiling, and most of the time, very outgoing, but could be shy
at times. MaKaya was very sensitive; her feelings would get hurt very easy. She
was always concerned with others happiness and well being. She loved giving
hugs and meeting knew people. Though she would be scorned for talking to
strangers, one day in the store, she ran up to a woman she did not know and
wrapped her little arms around her, giving her the biggest, tightest hug. The
woman, with tears in her eyes, looked at MaKaya and explained that MaKaya
did not know how much she needed that hug.

There are no words to describe how amazing my princess was. She changed my
life in a good way, and I am so grateful and honored that God chose me to be
her mommy.
