Funeral Costs: Ember Bonnie Williams born sleeping

On March 27th (my daughter) began a nightmare no parent should ever have to go through. She has been expecting her 2nd child and having a very difficult pregnancy with multiple issues starting with HG (Hyperemesis Grividarum) from day 1. 

Due to constant debilitating illness caused by HG she lost her job as a nurse where she was in charge of wound care for a nursing home facility. Kristy is a kind and compassionate caregiver as well as a veteran. She loved her job.

As a result of this complication she lost her job because pregnant mothers have no protections. She has since then been in a financial hard spot while also raising a teenage daughter as a single mother. She later was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and began to have related complications to that as well. Due to this and excessive fluid around the baby her provider felt it best to schedule her to be induced April 7th. Before this date has come to pass- the worst thing a parent can ever experience has happened.

On the night of March 26th, 2019 my daughter stopped feeling her baby, Ember Bonnie Williams, move. We quickly checked for a heartbeat (again she is a nurse) and could not find one. So we, with her 13 year old daughter, loaded up and headed to the ER. It was at this time we learned that Ember had passed away. We still are waiting for answers as to why. Kristy was induced and Ember was born sleeping at 1:30 am March 28th, 2019.

This is an emotional burden no parent should ever bare but many have. Unfortunately you cannot be prepared for this as you cannot hold life insurance on unborn children. Add to this loss of employment due to a high risk pregnancy and no paternal support. Kristy really needs out help right now. Emotionally and financially.

We are asking for help for the cost of funeral arrangements for sweet Ember as well as some help for her to simply get by until re-employed. No parent should have to worry in this situation how to afford and plan a funeral for their full term stillborn child.

Please even if you only have a dollar to donate - consider donating. Kristy is a single mother of a teenage daughter who works as a nurse helping others. Let's lift her and daughter up during this time of devastation.
