On January 11, 2016 Andrea gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Adeline Katherine Nielsen. Addie was born a little early. Everything seemed ok at first, but then Addie started having seizures. Lots of them. It was determined that Addie had had 2 strokes in utero & the right hemisphere of her brain hadn't developed properly. Needless to say, things did not go quite the way we hoped they would. Andrea & Addie are currently residing at Children's Hospital in Denver where Addie is receiving the best possible medical care. We are not sure how long it will be until Andrea is able to bring her baby girl home, or what the outcome of all of this will be, although we are very hopeful. Andrea's friends & family are starting this Go Fund Me to help off-set some of the unexpected expenses incurred as a result of these unfortunate complications. We don't want Andrea to have to worry about anything other than being strong and getting Addie through this tough start to her life. We appreciate any donations you are able to make. Also, your kind words and prayers help more than you know. Thank you.
