Miracles for Mallory

*Taken from the website


"Mallory Marie was born with Trisomy 18. She had a severe heart defect and an omphalocele. Throughout the pregnancy, Mallory was given little hope of surviving the birth. Beating those odds, Mallory fought to stay alive for four wonderful days, touching every person that came into contact with her. She was a magnificent little girl who only blessed lives and knew love."

Starting September 7th, Mallory's family will be holding a silent auction to raise money to help other families affected by Trisomy 18. I lost a niece to this chromosomal defect, Kaleigh Jane, who passed on February 7, 1994. In honor of her and my sister, I am donating my original painting of Kaleigh's little sister's softie.

I would greatly appreciate it if you would please visit Miracles for Mallory to see their story, the auction, or even find out how to donate. I'm off now, to hug my girls a bit tighter and longer than usual. :)

Thank you,

Thank you so much for always droping in on my blog- I enjoy reading everyon's comments! I will jump by that sweet babies site- My cousin's baby is very sick with a mitochondrial disease also having to do with genes. It is so heartbreaking and ever time I think of her I kiss my babies!
