On July 17, 2016, Melissa announced to all her friends and family that they would be expecting. Posted the cutest picture of Trevor with his big brother shirt. She said "After going through a miscarriage this year, I felt so broken. So lost. And to this day I'm still confused as to why it happened. However, God had and other plan in store for my family and I. They say a baby born after a miscarriage is called a rainbow baby. With that being said, Sterling and I are so very excited to announce the following" the picture of Trevor said "I have a secret.... Due January 2017".
Well over 200 friends congratulated her on the pregnancy. There was so much excitement.
July 25th was Melissas's 4D sonogram, and they found out the gender of her new baby.
On July 31st, we all found out that Trevor would be having a baby sister.
Trevor was so happy, he was hoping for a baby sister. Often giving mommy's belly kisses and telling her stories. He was sooooo excited.
The whole family dreamed of spending the future with their baby girl.
On August 9th, Melissa and Julie went shopping for the little one, they got a new diaper bag, adorable clothes and a few other things. She was past 12 weeks pregnant so she said we could start shopping for her.
Late August she shared with Facebook the first baby bump picture...so cute!
Planning for the future, while the weather was warm, Melissa and Sterling prepared their house for their little girl, with the perfect nursery.
Fast forward to this week, October 20th. Melissa wasn't feeling 100% so she decided to call her doctor. They did an ultrasound only to find that her perfect little girl no longer had a heartbeat. She was devastated. Trevor was so proud to become a big brother. How would they tell him about his sister?
She soon delivered a tiny, beautiful baby girl at 10.3 ounces and 19 centimeters long, stillborn. Why are these bad things happening to such great people?
Now as a community, together, we can help the Haase family with burial, funeral costs, as well as the unexpected time off of work for both Melissa and Sterling as they mourn. Please donate, even if it's $5. Anything will help and is much appreciated so we can properly lay the beautiful Lexi Marie Haase to rest.
