The death of a loved one is always extremely sad, but the death of a baby or child is so very heartbreaking.
Recently, country star Aaron Watson opened up about losing his infant daughter shortly after her arrival into this world.
Julia Grace passed away on October 10, 2011. Prior to her passing, Aaron and his wife Kim received devastating news while Julia was still in-utero.
Julia was diagnosed with a chromosomal disorder while still inside the womb. And while the odds of survival were about 50 percent, Aaron and Kim hoped for the best throughout the pregnancy.
Instagram posts were published on Aaron Watson's account and his wife's account regarding the anniversary of Julia's passing.
Kim admitted that losing their infant daughter was the couple's worst nightmare, but what helped get them through the difficult time was their unwavering faith in god.
Day 283: #mrsaw2017 6 years ago today we experienced a suffocating pain like we never could've imagined. And while there are still tender days, there are so many more filled with smiles, pure joy, and laughter. Was this the road @aaronwatsonmusic and I wanted to ever travel - no, in fact it was our worst nightmare. But God didn't promise life would always be sunshine and rainbows. He does, however, promise to walk along side us, to carry us, and to never leave. And He has kept that promise. Our journey moving forward has been beautiful and bittersweet, but experiencing such heartache allows you a special lens in which to view this thing called life. So today, I want you all to know that we hold to the truth we always have - that God is still good, even when things don't go our way, and when life cuts us deep. This life is short, but one thing is certain - eternity awaits us all. If you don't know Jesus, please ask me; I'd be honored to tell you just how much He loves you. #juliagrace #jakejackjoleekateandjuliagrace

Aaron's Instagram spoke of how life is fragile, and how he will see Julia again one day.
Today is a tough day. Today is a reminder that life is fragile. Life is precious. Today is reminder of the pain that so many feel everyday. Today is a reminder that because of Jesus I will someday see Julia again. There were some tears this morning when I woke up Jolee Kate & she asked to sing Julia Happy Birthday. Sweet girl, You would have been six today. I only think about you all the time. There's no doubt in my mind that you are dancing, singing & celebrating your day today in Heaven. We love you [email protected]
