Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. On Mothers Day, Sunday May 14th 2017, the Lingle family welcomed a new bundle of joy to the family. Zakiya Avigail was born at 29 weeks and weighed 3 pounds 7 ounces, and 15 in a half inches long. Since May 14 Zakiya has been in the NICU at Children's Hospital. Even though everyday has brought a new milestone, Zakiya will be staying for about another 2 weeks as she needs to show she can eat from a bottle before she can go home to meet her big brother Silas.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement as we count down the day's for Zakiya to arrive home. The average cost for Zakiya to be in the NICU is around $3000 per day. If you want to donate financially to the family, your donation will not only help cover Zakiya's medical expenses but also help the family with travel and lodging expenses.
