Friends & Family are uniting to raise money for the Crabtree family, in honor of their angel Lydia Ann who passed away at just 27 days old.

Joanna and Kevin Crabtree have been dealt quite the hand in life. Blessed with two beautiful daughters, they were thrilled when they learned one more was on the way.

Lydia Ann was not even born when the doctors, on a routine ultrasound, discovered a severe birth defect, one so severe that the various specialists her mother saw said baby Lydia Ann would not survive birth.

Her brain had failed to develop normally, and as a result, the doctors believed that the birth process itself might lead to her death. It if didn't, her body would be unable to survive long outside the womb.

Lydia Ann's family had many miracles happen for them during the pregnancy. For instance, some random stranger paid for their dinner one evening when her mother was nearing the end of her pregnancy.

We would like to make another miracle happen for them. They had talked about going on a fun vacation with their older daughters after Lydia Ann's birth and death. But vacations for a family of four are expensive. We would like to raise money to help them cover the cost of a fresh start.

Lydia Ann beat the odds and survived birth, went on to go home with her family and live for 27 days. 27 wonderful days. 27 long days. 27 days that were too short. It was more time than they were given, but less than any parent would want.

Please help us raise this money for this deserving family by making a small contribution to Wings for Lydia Ann.
