Angel Baby Lorenzo

Anyone who knows me, knows Kristen is like a sister to me.  It is with a heavy heart that I share a bit of her story when asking you to please help out her family during this difficult, life changing time. 
At 31 weeks pregnant, Kristen went into the hospital to hear a mom’s worst nightmare come true. Her baby had passed. One would think that this heartbreaking news would be the worst day of her life, but it got worse. 
  During delivery, Kristen came close to death herself multiple times. She had to get a record breaking amount of blood products infused during her emergency surgery to keep her alive. 
  She has been in the hospital for weeks now, not able to grieve because she has been fighting for her life. She has an 8 year old boy, who has been waiting for mom to come home and for his big brother title, which now he won’t have. 
  Kristen has a very long physical recovery ahead of her and a lifetime of carrying this grief and devastation of losing a child with her. 
  She will not be able to work for a long time. She has accrued so many medical expenses for herself and for the funeral she will have to plan for Lorenzo.
  For this reason, I am asking if you can find it in your heart to make any donation you can to this beautiful family. This is my way of letting their family know that we are here for her as a community in this devastating time. 
Thank you so much.
