Hope, Christopher’s and Debbie’s first child, was born with scoliosis and omphalocele, a rare, congenital abnormality of the abdominal wall. Born on March 2, 2021, she passed away from respiratory failure three days later.
“Our baby girl emitted such a sweetness, she was a fierce warrior princess!” her mother relates. “She was so strong and fought very hard to stay with us. Our baby girl gave us three glorious days with her.”
Christopher and Debbie cherish their Soul portraits. “They have given us so much. We look at them all the time, and even though Hope is always in our hearts, the pictures are a way to physically see and touch her.”
