Emma Dean Wood - Classs Speech on Kayleigh

Over the past year, Emma has been working hard to come up with a speech for her school. It is a yearly competition where the winner of each class gets to share their speech in front of the whole school.

Emma decided to put a speech together about Kayleigh and share how her life has been changed by our sweet little Angel. Unfortunately Emma's speech was not chosen to move on to the next round, but we are all so very proud of her for her hard work and dedication. She is definitely #1 in our book and we are so grateful to have Emma in our life.

Please enjoy Emma...



Thank you for everything Emma! You are very inspiring :)

Dear Kayleigh,
Today is the 3 year anniversary of my daughter coming home from the hospital after nealy losing her. It is also the 3 years anniversary of " meeting" you and your family. Your blog is the first blog I had ever read and I am still amazed today at the strength you had. Thru the writing of your patents, I actually felt a connection with you and your family and I came back every day, sometimes multiple times a day (depending on how rambunctious you were being that day)to check on you. I find myself still checking your blog every once in a while. I know we wont understand the reasons that things happen, but I believe I found your blog to help me find faith when I had very little left. Of all days to thank you for that, I thought an anniversary might be a great one. Thank you Kayleigh for giving me the faith to get thru the toughest times of my life. Rest in peace sweet baby.

With Love,
Shelby

This is amazing how a one pound baby could over come so many obstacles when in the beginning she wasn't even supposed to live! Kayleigh's story has defiantly changed the way I live each day and I am sure it has changes the way others approach each day. God bless your family and remember Kayleigh's story will never be forgotten. ��

I lost my baby kaylie this year are babies had similar problems .. Kaylie only lived for 11 days she was also 1 pound then dropped 13 oz ... I'm glad u had some good doctors cuz I didn't. My baby didn't even die from being so small or from a disease they did a surgery and I kept asking them about her blood count and saying they should give her blood she just had surgery the next day she die from blood loss. I miss my baby so much she was so beautiful and tiny like your girl.

I feel soo bad for you guys. She was such a little baby. I love the picture that had her dads wedding ring as a bracelet. My mom and I are touched by the story that she kept going and surviving just for her mom and dad just so she could spend time with them. I almost cried when I watched that video on YouTube!! :'(
