Ella's Story

The story of Ella’s Halo.

Ella was born on March 25, 2009 at 2:37 am, at 24 weeks. She was 11 1/2 inches long and weighed 1 pound 2 ounces.

She was born premature and was a very sick little baby, but she was such a fighter, a little feisty at times, and full of love. Ella was our little girl, her daddy's peanut, and her mommy's love. She liked to wiggle her toes, squeeze her daddy's finger, let her mommy kiss her feet, peek out at her nurses, dance to Twinkle Twinkle, cuddle sweetly with her mommy, gaze into her daddy's eyes, be spoiled by 4 uncles, keep the doctors guessing, and knew how loved she was by her grandmas and grandpas. Our little baby is now our little angel in heaven...and she probably is still dancing to Twinkle Twinkle.  She was only here for a short time (83 days to be exact) but we hope her memory will live forever in the help we provide to other little ones.
