Daddy and Mommy aka Chris and Nikki! We met on March 18th, 2000 and have been in love ever since :) We have been through so much together, the pain & heartache, but also the laughs & joy.
Nadine is our 7 year old drama queen who thinks she is 27! She is independent, smart (of course!), compassionate, and loves her brother and sisters so much. She's our Bubbles, Peanut, and any other silly name we think of!
Our Angel Alyssa
Feb. 22nd, 2008
Alyssa was born without reason at 22 weeks. We still have no idea why I went into premature labor. We miss her every single day, and will always wish we had an answer as to just why my water broke so soon. I did have my gallbladder out at 15 weeks, and some complications...but the doctor's didn't believe it had anything to do with her birth. In our arms a moment, in our hearts forever.
Our Hero David
Jan. 12th - Jan. 15th, 2009
When I was 27 weeks pregnant with David we found out he had multiple issues, including heart defects and hyrdocephalus. We were living in an area with no pediatric heart surgeon so we moved in a matter of weeks to Kansas City, MO to be near Children's Mercy Hospital for David to be born. We believed surgery would heal his heart booboo's, and it wasn't until he was born that we were told he had no chance of making it. We spent 4 days with our lil hero, as he fought to live and stay with his Daddy and Mommy. We held him in our arms as he went to join his sister in Heaven.
We have lost 3 babies in 2 years. One miscarriage at 12 weeks, Alyssa was born at 22 weeks and lived 3 hours, and our hero David who passed away on Jan. 15th of this year to multiple problems at 4 days old. This is my journey...
