As a tradition, we will be releasing balloons in celebration of Melody's birthday and life. We will raise money for the "See Ya Later" Foundation by selling each balloon for $10, in hopes of reaching the grand number of 159 balloons to represent every day she lived. We will release all the balloons fund raised on November 1st.

Melody was born on November 3rd 2009. She was absolutely perfect. However, she was born with Trisomy 18, which the doctors said to be "incompatible with life." Her life expectancy was a week. Knowing we had very limited time with Melody we had to truly relish every day we got to know her. Day by day she continued to defy doctors' expectations and fought hard with every little breath she took. Melody was a miracle and has changed our lives so drastically in such a small amount of time: bringing so many incredible people into our lives, teach-ing us an appreciation for the delicacy of life and most of all the importance of reaching out to those who need you. Every single day with Melody was a gift and we were blessed to have 159 days with her! Since her 4th birth-day is coming up, we will continue to celebrate her legacy by supporting the See Ya Later Foundation.

Going through a crisis, and feeling helpless, nothing compares to having unexpected support. It genuinely has made a difference in our life, and it's one we will never forget. Now we are encouraging our friends and family to be that hero and make a difference in the life of a family going through the toughest moment of their lives.
