They are parents to two little boys, Isaac and Asher.
Earlier this year, they shared with everyone that they were expecting again and this time it was twins! They were so thrilled and excited. The whole family was anticipating their arrival and anxious to find out their genders and whether or not they would be identical.
There had been no twins born in the family in over 75 years.
Since she was having twins, we knew there could be some complications. Sure enough, she had to be put on bedrest a few months ago. So she has been unable to work at her job as an LVN in the cardiac care unit at Kaweah Delta Hospital.
Since their boys are young, Aaron too has had to scale back his hours to help care for the children.
They are Christians and they had faith that everything would be fine.
Then, in the early morning hours of July 5th, the unthinkable happened. Vida started premature labor and their babies were stillborn. Their hearts had beat strong until just moments before birth.
As you can imagine, Aaron, Vida and the entire family, are devastated.
They were able to hold them both for a while and said they were perfect, just tiny.
A girl, Grace Vida Halsey and a boy, David Robert Halsey.
They were not expecting to have to bury their babies.
As you all know, funerals are very costly. Being a young couple, with a family and Vida having just recently finished her degree, they were not prepared for this expense. It has hit them hard and they want to give their babies a proper burial.
They have spent the last few days trying to figure out a way to pay for the overwhelming costs in such a short amount of time. Time is ticking and this only adds to their burden and sorrow.
Please, If you could find it in your heart to donate to this fund, our entire family would be so grateful.
Every little bit helps and we are so appreciative.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read their story.
