Rachel's Rainbow

20 years ago I fell in love with a beautiful, healthy baby girl I named Rachel. At that moment I knew that nothing else would ever compare to that love. My dreams became dreams for her. My aspirations became aspirations for her. I wanted for her. She was my purpose.
On June 14, 2016 Rachel was admitted to the hospital with sepsis, endocarditis (infection of the heart valve) and septic emboli in her lungs from a staph infection. She was intubated on life support for over 3 weeks in the ICU. She had open heart surgery to replace the infected heart valve. Her lungs were severely damaged and she still has a chest tube draining the infection from her lungs until the doctors can determine the best course of action to treat her. She was released from the ICU and readmitted. She is weak and needs intense physical therapy; her muscles are in atrophy. She can't bend her knees, stand up or walk. I have never left her side. How could I? She is the love of my life.
I have exhausted all of my personal time off and the bills just keep piling up. I'm afraid that she won't have a house to come home to if I can't maintain payments. We need your help. This little girls life has barely just begun.

One day when driving home from the hospital after having a pretty discouraging day I saw the most beautiful rainbow gleaming across the entire sky. I had never in my life seen anything so amazing. I knew it was a sign from God that everything will be okay. Rachels Rainbow.
