On February 22, 2018 Olivia Rene Solis was born to Miguel and Jacqueline (Nortman)Solis. From shortly after that time, Olivia has been in the neonatal ICU as a result of a congenital heart defect. In her short life she has already experienced two major heart procedures and received CPR for over an hour, and continues to fight for her life.

Through this time, Olivia’s parents have been surrounded by friends, praying for them constantly, as they hope for a miracle. Olivia was baptized in the ICU and the family gave her the baptismal name, Faith.

Miguel and Jacqueline are deeply grateful for all of the prayers and support that are pouring in from all over the world. While their request is simply for continued prayer, the reality is that the costs are mounting. Olivia is receiving the best of care, and it comes at quite the cost.

As friends of Miguel and Jacqueline, we ask you to lend your financial support to the overwhelming costs of hospital care for Olivia Faith Solis, as well as continue to extend your prayers, hopes, and best wishes to the family as it keeps them encouraged and hopeful.

All donations to this campaign will go directly to offsetting the expenses the family is incurring during this time. Your support is needed urgently and anything you might offer is deeply appreciated.

A new chapter opened for baby Olivia and the Solis family last night when our sweet child received the heart transplant she has waited on for so long. While this means new hope, it also means new challenges. Let us show our continued support.

Shared by Jacqueline Solis:

Our sweet baby girl turned 6 weeks old yesterday! She’s loving having the breathing tube out of her mouth, as you can see by the smile on her face, and her tummy is doing better with my breast milk! It will be a slow process of weaning her off of one heart medicine and hopefully transitioning completely to another/others as long as her little heart can tolerate it. They won’t reassess her heart function by echo until next week, but, as all of the doctors say, it doesn’t matter what the tests show, Olivia is going to tell us what she can and can’t do herself. So we will continue to pray that God strengthens her heart and we thank Him for all of the miracles He’s performed through her so far that allow us to share in the joy of her smile everyday! Thank you all for your continued thoughts, prayers, love, and support!

Updates on little Olivia: she has officially been placed on the heart transplant list, while we continue to pray that her left ventricle heals so that she might not require the operation. Further, we pray that her brain is strong enough to rewire itself around her three areas of stroke. Let us keep up our hopes, prayers, and support.
