Saving Sophia Grace

A lot of you have been asking what you can do for my sister and her family, so I set up this page to try to help her and her husband cover medical bills for their daughter, Sophia. Here is a little background on their story:

In 2009, my sister, Sarah and her husband decided it was time for them to start their family. In June of 2009, she found out she was pregnant, and we all were so excited for them. In December of 2009, Sarah's water broke due to unknown complications, and born at only 23 weeks, Baby Joel was not mature enough to survive outside his mama.

They took time to grieve for their son, and heal from losing their baby boy. They decided it was time to try to have a baby again, and in March of this year (2013), they learned Sarah was pregnant. Then, in April, we learned they were having twin baby girls, and could not be more excited.
On June 21, we got the terrifying news that she could be losing her babies again, and was hospitalized and put on bed rest. Two days later, Baby A's (Lexie), water broke, which can make it difficult for her to mature and grow, but since Sarah didn't go into labor, they allowed her to stay pregnant on STRICT bed rest.

About a month later, on July 28th, she started having pain and had to go in for an emergency C-Section. Due to Lexie's lungs being very immature and other complications she suffered, their sweet girl passed away that night.
Her sister, Sophia, born at 1 lb. 11 oz. has been fighting for her life in the NICU. She has had to undergo heart surgery, blood transfusions and many other trials, but she is starting to grow and get stronger.

Unfortunately, with the lost income from Sarah being on bed rest, and the costs from Sophia's treatments and being at the hospital for an extended amount of time, the bills have started to add up, and their income can't keep up.

We appreciate all the help from you, and thank you for very much for taking time
to read their story.





Sincerely,
The Little Sister
