“She has taught me to love hard and to live fully…”
Katherine Ivy Hall, Trisomy 13, 8/6/2013 – 8/11/2013 Arab, AL
Hello! My name is Rachel and I gave birth to the amazing miracle known as Katherine Ivy. Katherine was diagnosed at 22 weeks with full Trisomy 13. I was told she would never make it to 37 weeks and if she did she would die as soon as the cord was cut. Katherine was born at 36.6 weeks on Aug. 6, 2013 at 7:50am weighting in at 4lbs 11oz and 19 inches long. She came out crying and breathing on her own. Katherine lived for 5 amazing days and has touched thousands through her facebook page Hope for Katherine Ivy. She passed peacefully on Aug. 11, 2013 at 6:18pm surrounded by love.
Katherine has changed my life forever. She has taught me to love hard and to live fully because we never know just how long we will get here on earth. I love you my sweet angel baby.
