Little Melody was the youngest of five children; her older siblings are Timothy, Taide, Trinidy, and Tanner. Melody was born on November 3, 2009, and passed away on April 10, 2010. She suffered from a chromosome disorder called Trisomy 18. “I can’t explain how sweet she was,” her mother says. “She was incredible in every way. Everything about her was so amazing and beautiful. When I think back about my child, I love everything about her, especially the way she would communicate with us by making certain gestures.” To commemorate what would have been Melody’s 1st birthday, her sister Taide, along with family and friends, sold prayer balloons and donated all the proceeds to Soulumination. Soulumination would like to thank Taide and her family for their incredible generosity and love.
Melody’s mother Maria would like to thank Providence Hospice of Seattle, and Design Christian Church for their support.
