On September 11th of this year, Ty and Andrea embarked on an extraordinary journey to adopt little Evangeline. She's a bundle of joy with a beautiful extra chromosome, giving her the diagnosis of Down syndrome. Alongside her infectious smile and brave spirit, she also faces a severe heart defect and lung disease, which have caused her significant health challenges since birth.
Over the past two months, Evangeline has been in the ICU in Madison, fighting courageously. On October 31st, she underwent a life-saving open-heart surgery, a major milestone in her journey. Her stay in the hospital is far from over, and it's taking a substantial toll on Ty and Andrea and their family.
As loving and dedicated parents, they have been taking turns staying by Evangeline’s side in the ICU for her brave health battle. With no paid time off, they have no income when they are in Madison with Evangeline. On top of this, they are dealing with the financial strains of the ongoing very expensive adoption process.
The outpouring of love, support, and prayers has been incredible. Now, they could use some financial support to help with bills during these trying times. Any contribution you can offer would be an immense help to this remarkable family and would mean the world to them. Thank you for your compassion and generosity!
