Help for Hope

This is Hope. My beautiful niece. She was 5 days and 3 hours old when she passed away. She had Arthrogryposis, which means one born with joint contractures, causing little to no movement. Which was ok, we knew during pregnancy, she had this but it didn't bother us, we still wanted to care for the blessing we were given, and that's why she was named Hope. We just hoped to give her the best life we could.
At time of birth she had a breathing tube insertion, since she wasn't able to breathe on her own. Within the 5 long days of her being in the NICU, doctors noticed no eye movement to light, no signs of brain function and vitals were not where they needed to be, so several tests had been run, and it was confirmed that there was no brain activity except small seizures caused from the bleeding, and most of her organs were beginning to fail and that we didn't have much time left with her, so as a family we stayed with her as long as the hospital would let us. As a parent that's something no one wants to have to go through, we all hope for the best for our children and just want to enjoy life with them. Unfortunately we were not given that opportunity, instead we are forced to let go of the little angel God blessed us with.
We are asking for some help with funeral costs to have a memorial for Hope. We just want to give her the proper burial that she deserves and lay her to rest peacefully. We do appreciate any donations given and everyone's prayers sent for our baby girl. Thank you for taking the time to read about our little angel and for anything u can help with! God Bless!
