Brooklyn Elizabeth Hales was born on November 28th, 2010. Without a chance to be held by her parents, she was whisked away to the NICU at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas. Hooked to tubes and wires, Brooklyn was struggling to hold on. Over the next few days, she fell in and out of stability. Her vitals jumped up and down as the doctors worked hard to control her treatment. In the NICU you are taught to take it “one day at a time”. Over the course of four long months, Brooklyn took it one minute at a time. From her fight we learn about fear, faith, and the power of prayer. No matter where you come from, or what you face, Brooklyn’s journey provides hope.
