Meet sweet little Hope Faith. Her little life has impacted so many in its brevity. She is longed for and loved.  At an early ultrasound, my sweet little niece was diagnosed with Trisomy 13.

I would like to tell you a little bit about Trisomy 13. It is a rare chromosome abnormality that affects approximately one in every 8,000-12,000 live births. Babies with Trisomy 13 have many abnormalities, involving nearly every organ system in the body, as well as developmental delay. Cleft palate and heart abnormalities are also very common.  Only about 10% of the babies will live to see their first birthday. Hope's outlook is bleak.

Her parents were told that the chance of miscarriage before reaching full term was 40% and if they are able to meet and hold her before she fades away, they would most likely only have minutes to hours with her.
At that moment her parents began a battle to fight for Hope and to not lose their own. Their doctor at the time recommended they terminate pregnancy, but Hope's brave parents decided to cling to hope and let her live out the life intended for her until God took her home to be with Him.

As you can imagine for a young family, this whole process is very overwhelming. My sisters and I have come together to set up this fund with the intention of raising some support to help cover the cost of a professional photographer, funeral, a memorial service, medical expenses, and to allow my brother a few days off work so they are able to grieve together without the added burden and stress of finances. 

Thank-you so very much for considering to support their need. Whether you are able to help with a monetary gift or not, please keep Will, Tori, big sister Ava, and Hope in your prayers.

Thank-you all so much for your amazing generosity, care of, and prayers for Will, Tori, and Ava. They have been so blessed by your responses. Due to different donations meeting some of the initial needs posted, we have decided to close the fund at this point. This has been a huge support to them. At this point prayers would be so welcome as they move forward together. Our love to all of you and God bless.
