My name is Stephanie. My cousin Olivia gave birth to this beautiful angel Nenah Ruth on December 14, 2017. Unfortunately, Nenah Ruth did not survive, soon after the delivery she went to Heaven to be with her namesake and grandmother, my Aunt Ruth. This has been a heartbreaking experience for our entire family, but especially for my cousin Olivia. I cannot imagine the grief that she is experiencing.
I’m setting up this Go Fund Me page with hopes of raising money to help Olivia heal. She will need love, support and grief counseling. Her job does not provide maternity leave. She worked two jobs during her pregnancy so that she would have enough money put away to stay home with her baby through the end of January, unfortunately that money had to be used to bury her baby girl. Emotionally Olivia is unable to go back to work anytime soon, nor is she able to physically. She is still healing. This has been a traumatic experience for her. This was her first child, and Nenah Ruth’s arrival was eagerly anticipated by the proud first time mom to be.
Any amount that you are able to donate would be much appreciated. My hope is that she can take the time off from work that she had planned to so that she can get well. There will always be a void in all of our hearts due to the loss of sweet angel baby Nenah Ruth, but no ones heart is more broken than Olivia’s.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Prayers are also welcomed and very much appreciated.
Olivia’s cousin Stephanie
