Our beautiful baby girl Emaleya Carolyn was born December 3, 2014 and became our Angel on December 11, 2014. In her short 8 days, she brought us enough joy to last a life time. When Emaleya was born, she was absolutely perfect. The most beautiful little baby. It was love at first sight for me, her Daddy and her big sister. We were now a family of four. It was going to be everything we ever dreamed of. We brought her home for a couple of days and we got to bond and start to adjust. We had no idea that our darkest days were ahead. It soon became clear to me that something wasn't right. We ended up in the local ER where we were then transported to Seattle Children’s. They began tirelessly trying to find what ailed our little girl. After a few days and many tests, it was found that she had the genetic disorder, Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia. During the next few days, we embraced every second, minute, hour that we could with our girl. We showered her with love, songs, stories and family until she took her last breath.
Although she is not here with us physically, she will always be here in spirit. She is our little Angel. The love we have for Emaleya is beyond words and only gets stronger. We speak of her daily to allow others to know how blessed we were to have her. Although her time on this earth was short, she made an impression on our lives and hearts that will never go away.
Mommy, Daddy and Sissy love you.
