My Story

"For this child I have prayed." 1 Samuel 1:27 Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Nelle's father and I decided to set up this site as a way to connect with and update all of the people who have been supporting us and praying for us during this ordeal. Nelle Raquel Vazquez was born on November 29, 2012 at just 23 weeks and 4 days gestation. Since she arrived into this world screaming we have been constantly amazed and awed by her, but still this has been a heart wrenching journey for our family. We so appreciate the kindness, concern, and genuine care that has been shown us. We know that Nelle is a miracle born of faith and prayer. She is evidence that one needs only 'faith as a mustard seed' and nothing is impossible! We hope to continue to update you all with the many ways Nelle continues to beat the odds.

Thank you all!

The Vazquez Family
