On March 13, 2009, at 9:41 pm, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Remington Lyn. We were aware that she was going to have Down syndrome, and we were so excited about the journey ahead of us. That night and the next day many doctors checked her out, and we were told she was healthy and could go home with us the next day. We took our little angel home the next day and were able to spend 3 wonderful nights at home as a family. Then Remi was admitted back into the hospital for jaundice. She was soon diagnosed with Hirschsprung's Disease and was scheduled for surgery. On March 26, 2009, she had her first surgery and complications started soon after. On March 27, 2009, she had her second surgery. Ten days later, on April 6, 2009, she left our arms and went to heaven to be with Jesus. While Remi was in the hospital, we stayed right by her side every second of every day. Our wonderful family and friends brought us all the shower/bathroom supplies we needed, clothes from our home, and more food than you could imagine. However, we realized through this whole experience, how difficult it can be having a child in the hospital for many days and how hard it is to live out of a waiting room. Because of this, we created R Angel. The money donated to R Angel is used to help families of sick children. We use the money to purchase and deliver care packages with shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc., baskets of food and drinks, and hot meals from our favorite restaurants to families living in the hospital with their children. We also use the money to purchase prepaid VISAs for families that may be traveling back and forth to the hospital daily to be with their child as well as families that are in hospitals outside the Toledo and surrounding area. We want to keep the spirit of our daughter alive and want to help families staying at the hospital as so many helped us.
God Bless! Ben & Amy
