Hello friends and family... I hate that we are even in a position that has come to this. But because many of you know me you probably also know that I am crazy enough to believe that God knows exactly what He is doing and has a plan that is much bigger than any of us... so we must continue to trust Him and His will for our lives and that includes little miss Alivia Grace.
With that being said... I can explain what has happened. Alivia Grace was born on September 10, 2017 at just 27 weeks gestational age. That made her 13 weeks early... 7 days after being born she was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Intraventricular hemorrhage on the left side of her brain. While we don't know what the future holds we must just trust God... and wait to see what all she will require. They are telling us now that she will have some developmental delays and will require a lot of work and therapy and that she will need us most. They can't really tell us what the future has in store because the truth is no one really knows. Alivia seems to be doing really well this is just the beginning... She has her good days and there are some not so good days also... which we know to expect.
So with all of that being said our family knew that because I was placed in the hospital 3 weeks prior to having her that she would more than likely come early we just didnt know how soon... and we definately didnt see things getting as hard as they have and sooo very soon. This is why we are reaching out for help from our loved ones that would like to be a help but that arent near by. We really hate that it has come to this and have went back and forth with even getting this page set up. But the truth is we dont know what else to do. With just moving into a new home and just starting a new job... Beau isn't able to take off work and I am in no position myself to jump right back up and head to work which is killing me.
We need help to be able to travel back and forth more than an hour away to be able to see Alivia and be by her side. Help with food while we are away from home. Bills, bills, and more bills. Help with Abigael and her care... which many of you have offered and are there for us when it comes to her but the truth be told we can't even take the trip to be with Alivia and leave Abigael with anyone without having the gas or funds to get back and forth to Alivia. This is all starting to really bother us and after praying... I figure the best option is to just ask fo help where we need it.
All we want is to be able to be there for both girls and for them to feel the love from both of their parents. So we are asking and will be forever grateful for the help that we receive... no amount is too small!!! We thank you all in advance for your help and time!!!
