Avery Ann Burns passed away

Little Avery Ann came into this world a feisty little girl despite her 1 lb 7 oz. We were told that she likely wouldn't survive in the womb. Well she made it. She was doing great and we knew she was going to be a pistol. Avery rollercoastered up and down, but she couldn't shake an infection. Doctors and nurses carefully looked after her. We love her and fought with her. We lost her on Friday night. We will miss her forever. We will celebrate her life with her sister Harper. Please keep us in your thoughts, but give us privacy. We are grieving the loss of our little girl and need the space the heal.

Nicole & Mike

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

As some of you may know, my best friend from childhood, Mike Burns, and his wife, Nicole Burns; Adrienne Abela's Sister, recently welcomed two little girls into their lives. On October 4th, Harper Elyse Burns (1lb 15.4oz) & Avery Ann Burns (1lb 7.1oz) came rushing into this world.  These two little angels are built like their parents, ready to take on any challenges that lie ahead. Nicole and Mike would never ask for your help, which is why I am doing it for them. Harper and Avery will be in the NICU for the next few months growing strong. During this time Mike and Nicole will have to drive back and forth from Sonoma to Walnut Creek to see the girls. Gas, medical bills, and sometimes the need to for accommodation near the twins are only a few examples of expenses they will be facing. 

Please help Adrienne and I support Mike and Nicole by providing a little peace of mind as they grow with their baby girls.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart and from all the Burns’ supporters.  It takes a village to raise children, now let us all prove how MASSIVE Nicole and Michael's village is.

With Love and Gratitude,

Ben Goldberg & Adrienne Abela

Harper Update:

She’s 4lbs 3 oz and she’s breastfeeding and just started bottle feeding. She’s found her thumb... So CUTE! She almost fits into preemie size clothes.


I want to thank everyone personally for every single donation. If I can personally help you please let me know. Bgoldberg@simplysolarcalifornia.com

If I can support a cause for you my Facebook look up Benjamin Goldberg. I will do what I can to show as much gratitude as you all have shown my family.

We truly collectively have shown Nicole and Michael the village they have. If you know anyone else who can join our village. Please ask them to donate. There are still many months ahead for this amazing family. “WE DO IT FOR THE KIDS”.

Many blessings,

Ben Goldberg

It gives me great joy everyday Harper gets stronger and stronger. Harper is coming in at 3lbs 4+oz!! She has increased her food intake every few days and has said to the doctors and her parents, she doesn’t need that oxygen!! Harper and her parents are blessed by everyones support, kindness, and love. I personally feel we are blessed to be apart of Nicole, Michael, Harper, and always in our hearts little miss Avery. There is still much to be done in our continued efforts to support the Burns family. Please donate, share to others, and send positive vibes.

HARPER (Burns Family Update) :Six weeks with you baby girl. We see how amazingly strong you are. You get that strength from your daddy, who’s holding us both up every day and helping us heal and make it through each hour. You make us wake up every day so we can hold you close and love you to pieces. #mylilharp #6weeksold #preemiestrong #hubbyofeternity

Harper Burns Update:

Harper has had a strong week. Growing in weight (2lbs 11oz) and has been able to interact with her amazing parents. The love and support you all have shown has helped tremendously. Nicole and Michael are so grateful to all.

Update on the parents:

Each day for them is another step. The sun goes down with a little sorrow and the sun rises the next day with a little more strength each day. It is hard to believe it has been 2 weeks since Avery’s passing and we miss her every second and we’re going through the motions, the roll-coaster of emotions, the ups and downs that each day brings. Celebrating the positive moments with Harper and equally embracing the heartbreak over Avery. They are carrying the torch for Harper and reminded of all the love around them. The continued prayers and support for Harper and our Angel Avery is appreciated in words they can not explain.

All our love,

Nicole and Michael

—————————————-

Please continue to keep Harper in your strength, joy, and happy thoughts. Thank you personally to each and everyone one of you. You and the other 83 donors have truly helped the heartache, pain, stress, unknowns, and the future with your love to the Burns and Abela families. We are all thankful to you.

May you have a blessed weekend.
