Subject: Fwd: BABY EMILEE
Emilee was a preemie. She was born 2 and a half months early. Her mom (Trina) had toxcima. Emilee fought a good fight to survive. She had a chronic lung disease. The hole in her heart was bigger than her arioa and this forced them to have to go ahead and do heart surgery. Her lining to her intestines came loose. Then she started passing blood in her stool.
Emilee weighed 1 lb. 4 oz. at birth she gained up to 2 lb. 3 oz. Everyone in the whole upstate and in other states were praying for her. She lived 6 weeks and 1 day. Her last day her mom went to see her and dropped pictures by for me at work. Then that evening the hospital called and said her blood pressure dropped and then she flatlined. They never could revive her.
You know Stephanie, I have suffered a lot of lost in my life. But to see my only child holding her baby for the first time ever after her death broke my heart.
This has been so hard, but I STILL BELIEVE MY GOD CAN HEAL!
We call Emilee our little missionary. God gave her to us. She had a special mission. She led her daddy to the Lord. Andy (her dad) told his dad that when Emilee came home he was coming to the Lord. The night she died he told his dad
"Emilee is home now I'm coming to God." He went forward Sunday and joined the church! This Sunday 8/6/06 he was baptisted. Just as he stood up to go to be baptisted he looked back at his brother and I saw Emilee in his face. Just the way he cut his eyes and looked around. I felted like Emilee was going under with him and came up again.
Emilee's due date was September 17. I DO NOT think it chance that she was born on her daddy's birthday!
Tonight 8/6/06 Trina's best friend Laura told me she came back to God because of Emilee!
So many people have told me that because of Emilee their lives have been changed in one way or another!
I know I will see her again in heaven one day and the good Lord knows I miss her so. Please pray that Trina and Andy will once again have a child. And that God will let them keep it to hold, raise to serve Him and to love.
Thank you for asking this is the first that I have gotten online since Emilee went to be with the Lord.
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers,
