"Some people believe in angels, I held one in my arms."

Heaven got a beautiful, tiny angel on November 2, 2014.  She may never have taken a breath outside her mommy's womb, but she was held tight and loved every day of her life inside.  She will be missed beyond measure.

Sarah and Brent were over-the-moon excited to find out that they were pregnant.  After suffering a miscarriage earlier this year, they were ecstatic to make it through the first half of the pregnancy without any major issues.  When they had their 20 week ultrasound, they found out that they were having a little girl, the perfect addition to their perfect little family.  They named her Hannah.  Sarah quickly accumulated a shoe collection for Hannah to rival Imelda Marcos.  Both Brent and Sarah loved the idea of having a little girl.  During that 20 week ultrasound they also found out that Hannah only had one umbilical artery (normally, there should be two).  This was a scare since a single umbilical artery can be associated with heart and kidney problems.  Hannah then underwent a thorough evaluation and was found to be perfectly healthy.  Phew.  The weeks chugged along.  Sarah was monitored closely because she had blood pressure problems when pregnant with Charlie.  Around her 7th month, her blood pressures started to creep up.  She was put on modified bed rest and had to take leave from her job.  The blood pressures came down and she was feeling great.  Phew.  Then last Sunday morning Sarah noticed that she hadn't felt Hannah move for a few hours.  She ate some sweets, which always seemed to perk baby Hannah right up, but no movement. She called her doctor and they told her to come into the hospital and get checked out.  Sarah came in chuckling to the nurses that she was probably one of those over-concerned mothers, thinking that they would reassure her and she'd head home.  Unfortunately, that's not what happened.  The nurse put the monitor on and couldn't find a heartbeat.  The ultrasound confirmed it, along with their worst nightmare.  Shortly after, Sarah was taken for Cesarean section where her doctor found that the umbilical cord was wrapped twice around baby Hannah's neck.  Beautiful baby Hannah was born into the world.  She was perfect.  She was right on target at 4 lbs 11 oz, 17 inches long.  She was held and loved by her mom and dad. She was baptized by the hospital chaplain into God's hands.  She will be forever loved and forever missed.

Please consider donating to Sarah and Brent to help with the funeral costs and celebrate the memory of baby Hannah.
