Today we are celebrating the 8th birthday of Ellianna Grace, and I can’t help but smile. Four and a half months seems like such a short time to get to have a person in your life, but eight years later, she is still making a difference and changing lives. From the relationships we have formed because of our journey with her, to the hearts we have gotten to relate to and bring comfort to because we have been there. Her story reaches on.
This week for her birthday we raised money for Brave Beginnings, an organization which provides life sustaining medical equipment to NICUs in order to support these tiniest of babies. With the generous help of our family and friends, we surpassed our fundraising goal within hours. Our little girl, making waves and bringing change. Couldn’t be more proud. My Jesus who promises to hold her, also promised that her story didn’t end with her death, and it most certainty hasn’t.
Happy birthday, baby girl!
Please leave me a comment, it lets me know you’re listening!

❤ there are no words. I didn’t know her but only thru you’re post and pictures and can only imagine how much she’d looked lol you and her sisters today. She’s content and playing and happy in heaven and you know she’s watching over everyone with her sweet smile.
Thank you April. I like imagining that too.
