Helping Hands for Baby DaCari

Hi, my name is DaCari!  My mommy Carrie ( Cook) and father  Darrell Wilson have been dreaming of meeting me for over 2 years now!  My parents found out I was actually growing and would be born within 9 months they were so excited I felt the butterflies!  Things were not all sunshine and rainbows even though it was sunny and warm for me.  I gave my parents a scare when my mom’s water broke at week 26. I got to spend some one on one time with her in the hospital kicking her and reminding her I am a strong fighter.  On June 6th, At week 29, I was not ready to meet the outside world, however it was becoming the safest place for me.  The cord was wrapped around me 2 times and I suffered lots of bruising and my right arm was completely blue from lack of circulation.   I was taken right away to the N.I.C.U. at Munson and mom was in recovery.  I did not like being away from my parents.  Where did her heartbeat go?  I was not getting enough oxygen, so that night I had to be taken to Devo's children’s hospital in Grand Rapids.  Did I mention I am a fighter?   My mom and dad are far away and have been out of work for 4 weeks now to be with me.  My mom has to be off work for 8 more weeks for surgery heal time and I would love to be able to spend some time with my parents when I am able to come home.    Would you help me fight the financial stress so my mom and dad can focus on fighting with me?  I don't want my parents to worry about paying bills, food or gas money to come see me so far away from home.   I would also like to be able to spend time adjusting when I am able to come home with my parents.  It would mean the world to me if you could donate and make it possible for me to spend time with my parents like any normal baby.   Please keep praying for my strength to fight anything that comes my way.
