God has a plan for each and everyone one of us. He planned for me to be an AUNT, and I could not be happier to do that job. Just 8 days ago we welcomed baby Addison to our family, she was a blessing this family really needed. This normal day of joy and happiness for any family was quickly turned upside down for my sister when we found out Baby Addison was born with Pulmonary atresia, a heart defect where the valve is completely closed thereby obstructing the outflow of blood from the heart to the lungs. She was Life Flighted to Houston to be monitored and today is undergoing her first surgery in a series throughout her life. Her mother, my sister, the strongest woman I know then suffered a near death experience with life threaten Preecamplsia causing her to be in the ICU and sedated for days, unable to enjoy and be there for her baby's battle because she was fighting one of her own. Her whole life she wanted a baby and didn't think it was going to happen for her, then she was blessed with this gift-she wasn't giving up without a fight.
All this said...
Feels like for years my family has been in and out of the hospital, we are far too familiar with these places. Emotionally this is devastating but also financially, this is a huge burden for any family. At this point in time, money and expenses are not even a thought but my sister and her family will be living in Houston for awhile and the cost of hotels and parking alone can break a bank, not to even mention medical bills. If you know me you know it's hard for me to not try and fix things for someone, so since I am not a doctor, this is the only way I can help. My family is not one to ask for donations but God says to reach out and ask for help from our brothers and sisters. If you are unable to make a donation, that is fine but PLEASE PRAY FOR BABY ADDISON and share her story! That is more to me then a financial donation to just spread the word and get everyone praying so God hears us loud and clear.
"For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies." "“ Psalm 57:10
