My Story

Ty Stephen Bennett Rivers was born at 12:30 PM on March 28 by emergency cesarean.  Due to a rare defect in the placenta, Ty had been severely weakened by blood loss that occurred for some time before birth.  He received amazing care in the NICU at Meriter Hospital for five days while we all watched and waited for his recovery.  Unfortunately, his little body was not able to recover.  He died peacefully in the loving arms of his mother and father on Good Friday, April 2.  Little Ty touched many hearts during his short life.  We will be forever changed and forever grateful for the time that we got to spend with him.
