Olympic star Bode Miller and his wife Morgan posed with their four children in a series of touching holiday images that were posted to social media on Tuesday. The couple also paid tribute to their late daughter, who lost her life over the summer, in the post. In one of the holiday pictures, the couple was seen posing with their late daughter Emmy, who died by drowning in summer. "Merry Christmas to our baby girl in heaven. We miss you so much!" wrote Morgan on Instagram.

The wife of the Olympic skier wrote, "2018 has been a year full of overwhelming sadness and overwhelming joy. We have spent half of the year mourning and attempting to heal the loss of our angel which feels like an impossible battle all while celebrating the birth of our son." She continued: "Seeking normalcy for our children has been our driving force forward. Normally I would be looking forward to a "fresh beginning" in 2019 but there is no more starting fresh after the loss of a child."

She concluded the festive but emotional post by saying, "So here’s to a healthy 2019 full of personal growth and creating many memories with my babies, full of smiles and laughs. Wishing everyone a special holiday season surrounded by loved ones."

Happy Derby Day! Wish I could be there this year with my hubby but I will definitely be rocking an awesome hat from my sofa with my growing baby bump.

Previously, Morgan had described going to her neighbor's house to look for late daughter Emmy, once she realized that the toddler was nowhere to be found. She saw a tiny glimmer of light coming from the door leading to the backyard and said that her 'heart sank.'

When she opened the door, she saw her child floating in the pool. The family rushed the little one to the hospital immediately, but the next day, doctors declared that there was nothing they could do to save the child. Little Emmy passed away eventually because her brain went too long without oxygen. Emmy's mother later expressed how she feels that talking about what happened to their toddler helps the entire family deal with the loss, and she shares her account with other people in the hopes that it will, later on, help other families prevent the same thing that happened to her daughter by being extra careful.
