Remembering Abel

5/6/20 - 12/21/20

this was my beautiful son, abel alexander. he was my first and only child, and the highlight of everyones day with his big blue eyes and his loving smile that accompanied the sweetest giggle. he came into this world as a preemie at 27 weeks gestation and suddenly left us at just 7 months and 15 days of life. throughout his short life, he faced a lot of struggles. i was lucky enough to spend every minute with him from the day he was born, to the day that he died. i watched him fight each battle with a smile, and face every hiccup with strength and positivity. i was there to soothe his tears and let him know just how much he was loved. this fundraiser is to honor abel and support me in paying for his funeral arrangements. i cherished every moment i had with my son, and i think of him every second of every day since i lost his precious smile. i only wish he had the chance to show this world what he had to offer, because i know it would've been incredible. his funeral arrangements are currently in standby until i am able to gather the funds for his final goodbye. i would be so grateful for any donation, big or small, to remember my son and honor his life.
