Ambassador Family

 

 

Merritt Family

Ali & Andrew’s son, Wayne, was born at 27 weeks weighing 2 lbs. 14 oz. Wayne was exceeding all expectations when he unexpectedly contracted E. Coli and passed away. Even though their first experience in the NICU was heartbreaking, their NICU nurses and staff made sure they had as many memories as possible with Wayne. Seven months later, Ali & Andrew found out they were expecting mono di twins, making Ali a high risk pregnancy from the start. Again, at 27 weeks, Ali’s water broke naturally and Annemarie & Vivian were born via emergency C-section. Both girls were doing well, but Ali would hold her breath, remembering Wayne. After 30 days in the NICU, the Merritt family left together. They began attending March for Babies in 2018 and walk to remember Wayne and celebrate Annemarie & Vivian.
