Tiff made it through the surgery just fine, but baby Sebastian was struggling for life. He was behind almost 4 weeks in growth, so when he was born, he was born 9 ounces in weight. He was the smallest baby born at the hospital to date. That sweet angel stayed with us for 27 hours, fighting through crashed heart rates almost every hour. God took him out of his pain the next day, and he left us behind with broken hearts that felt like they would never mend.
Sebastian obviously had the strength my sister had. I don’t know how, but after months of grieving, she and her husband have made the decision to adopt and move on trying to be parents. Miraculously, after contacting an attorney, within one week of their search, they were matched with a birth mother. They quickly put their life story together to present to the mother. She liked what she saw, and they were chosen out of multiple couples. Oddly enough, the baby will be born on Sebastian’s birth day!
Since we got this wonderful news, we also found out that the hospital bills for Sebastian were not covered on insurance because they did not add him to their insurance during the 27 hours that he was alive while Tiff was healing from her surgery, and her and her husband were trying to digest the news.
Adoption costs, on top of paying the enormous bills for Sebastian, have become overwhelming for these two hard working high school teachers. Please donate to a great cause for two awesome people finally getting to be parents!!!
