All babies are miracles.  Life is amazing in any form, but, this little peanut has been through more than most.  In fact, so have her mommy and daddy.  Melissa (i.e. mommy) is an amazing local jewelry designer and you can read more about their story with their second daughter, Kelsi, here.  Their story is sad, but it is not without joy.  Little, Kiari, is their latest blessing…but it was a bit of a bumpy ride to get her here.

Melissa was incredibly in tune with Kiari during her pregnancy and she started to notice something wasn’t okay.  After some convincing, the doctors ran tests and found Melissa was right.  Poor Kiari needed a blood transfusion and she needed it fast.  They were able to save her life but they told Melissa that if they hadn’t acted quickly, she would have never survived.  Throughout the pregnancy, Melissa traveled to Columbus for a number of transfusions and tests.  But, thanks to Melissa’s intuition, some amazing medical care, and lots of prayer, little Kiari was born a perfectly healthy little girl.  I am happy to share her with you today.

P.S. Check out her jewelry…all made by Melissa.  Isn’t that adorable?
