Here's Girlie's and Cory's story...
Our journey to become parents started in early 2014 when we decided we were finally ready for a family. After over a year of infertility, we were excited to discover we were pregnant on Labor Day, September 7th, 2015! It was early so we kept it to ourselves and started to plan our exciting future with this little one. We planned on telling the family on Christmas. We were both devastated when we miscarried on October 15th, the universal day of remembrance for pregnancy loss and infant death. We never got to see an ultrasound picture of our angel baby, Phoenix Alexander.
After another journey of infertility, God blessed us with a rainbow baby, Phoenix Jade, born on November 6th, 2017. She was our miracle, so perfect, even during pregnancy. Phoenix loved her floor gym, her "I love Daddy" nookie, and her four-legged sister, Minnie (Click here for Minnie's Page). We got to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's with our little peanut.
On February 2nd, 2018, Phoenix was found not breathing after a nap at her daycare and passed away at Children's hospital 2 days prior to being 3 months old on February 4th, 2018. The daycare lady was charged with 2nd degree manslaughter and sentenced to 6 months house arrest. Cory, friends, family, and I are advocating for harsher penalties.

Here's why we are raising funds...
This walk to us is all about Phoenix. We would love to invite you to her birthday parties, her school events, her games, graduations, prom, or any extracurricular activities she would have been a part of. As bereaved parents, we get to miss out on these wonderful things. Therefore, this walk is her event to celebrate her. We invite you to be a part of our child's event.
Missing Grace has been a gift for Girlie. During a time where the grieving is overwhelming, this support group makes the journey a little more bearable because it provides hope.
"My children's lives, short as they were, are remembered and celebrated here."
