 ORLANDO, FL
Natalie and Brian's beautiful baby girl Eleanor Josephine Morgan was born sleeping on September 11th 2015.  There are no words that can be said or actions that can be performed that will take away any of the pain that the family are in but it is important that we, their friends and family, take care of them in ways that we can.

Grieving after the loss of a loved one is a heavy weight to bear, let alone worrying about all the costs and logistics involved in arranging a funeral or memorial service. It is important that Natalie and Brian take some time now and not be worrying about bills or not being at work. There is nothing we can do to take away their pain but we can ease some of their worries with some financial support.

If you are on this page then you probably know Natalie or Brian and know that help isn't something they request, they are such strong people but they also know that we, their friends and families want to help them in ways that we can. 

As of right now the hospital deductible is approximately $3,000 and an unknown costs for funeral expenses at this time. Therefore a goal of $5,000 to start, which can be altered if needed.

Good Afternoon Everyone;
Please see the following from Brian and Natalie:


The past 11 days have been the worst of our lives. It still seems surreal, like a bad dream that we’re still waiting to wake up from. Nothing can take away the pain of never getting to know our daughter Eleanor. Never even getting to hear her take her first breath and hear her cry for the first time. The weight of all of life’s moments we will never have with her is crushing. Time heals all things and in some ways things have gotten easier. However, as reality settles in some things have also become more difficult.

If any good can be drawn from all of the sadness, it has been the overwhelming response from family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, and people we have never even had the pleasure of knowing. The countless number of messages of comfort and support alone are touching and consoling. What we still can’t wrap our head around is the immense generosity of so many that has left us just speechless. We don’t like asking for help because we don’t like to feel like a bother. We are so overwhelmed by your response that we are still at a loss for words more than a week later. “Grateful”, “appreciative”, and “indebted” barely even scratch the surface in trying to describe it. There are not enough minutes in the day to thank even one of you adequately. We don’t know what we did to deserve it, and it’s a question we’ll be asking ourselves for a long time to come. There are so many people that have helped us through this that we have never even met and so many more Anonymous supporters that we will never be able to thank. Thank you all, every last one of you, so much for all of the love and support. We truly cannot thank you enough. Your kindness cannot be measured and your generosity will never be forgotten. With all of the negativity and finger pointing and pessimism in the world, I am glad our baby Eleanor could be an example of the good that humanity is capable of. Natalie and I cannot thank you enough. THANK YOU, each and every last one of you.

Thank you to everyone that has donated, prayed and sent their wellwishes to the Morgan Family. It is humbling that the initial target to help cover the medical costs was reached in less than 24 hours. Even though the goal has been reached please continue to donate and share, this will give Natalie and Brian the opportunity to take the time they need before rushing back to work to get finances sorted. If you cannot donate, please share and say a prayer for the family. It is amazing what a strangers kindness can do.
Thank you.

Our son was stillborn on March 30, 2012. There is nothing anyone can say to ease the pain, but I can tell you now 3 years later that it does get better. It can be taxing on a marriage to suffer the loss of a child and I recommend counseling. There's lots of free options out there. It saved our marriage. One year later on March 9, 2013 we gave birth to our 2nd son. He was healthy and the rainbow baby we so desperately needed. I pray that more than money you find peace, a stronger bond with each other than before and that one day in your future you too are blessed with a rainbow baby of your own.

Natalie, Do know I prayed for you and you are deep in my thoughts.. I can't help but cry seeing and reading your story. I've never allowed my kids to cry it out but I do have my fair share of frustrations and will always remember you and your precious angel when it happens again.. to always remember the pain you're enduring and how fortunate and grateful I must remind myself to be. I prey the lord blesses you with another blessing and let her be as beautiful as your angel.. bless you

My son was born sleeping on March 11, 2015 so I unfortunately know what they are going through. The days will get better but there are still days that are unbearable. I cried the entire time reading this story remembering how I felt. I was at my 38 week checkup when we found out there was no heartbeat. Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep does a walk every year. It will be October 3 in Colorado or the virtual walk on October 24. It might be too early for them but they should look into this for next year. (https://www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org/remembrancewalk/) We were not lucky enough to have them come take pictures of our son (too many other precious babies that day) but their organization is wonderful. They have many resources on their websites for families around the country. Please have them look into them when they are ready. There are also tips for what friends and family can do to help support them. Friends and family have been what helped us get through this unbearable time in our lives. Most importantly say her daughter's name to her. Make her know that Eleanor was loved by everyone and that she will never be forgotten!

There are not any words I could possibly say to take the pain away because I could not even begin to understand what you are feeling. All I know by your story is that you are such a strong woman because honestly I just don't believe I would've had the strength and courage to keep going. My condolences to you and your family and may your sweet angel rest in peace. God bless you.

I am truly sorry for your lost. I do exactly how you are feeling I lost my triplets 10 years ago. They past away 4 days after they were born. For me it was really hard because I could hear their little heartbeats in my room for 6 months almost 7 months. Then all of the sudden they are gone. The pain never goes away. It just doesn't hurt as much as it did on the beginning. They are always on my mind. I pray for you guys the strength to get through this together. P

Natalie and Brian, We are complete strangers. I came across your story on Facebook. There are no words to express my sorrow for you and your missed memories. My husband, Bryan, and I lost our son on June 15th. Our hearts break for you and your family. The agony you feel is so real to us. In the beginning, all we wanted was to connect with other families with similar stories. We are miles apart, but if you want to talk, cry or just sit silently we are good for that. Keep talking and sharing. Sweet Eleanor's life has already touched so many people from near and far. Please accept this donation as our sincerest sympathy. It blows my mind after all the pain and no baby the hospital still sends you a huge bill, your body doesn't understand and the world doesn't stop. We get it, and we are so sorry you are facing this reality, too. Sending love from Nashville, TN.
