ABC News Clip regarding Teen Pregnancy:
Braelyn Marie McLaughlin
Birth: Jun. 4, 2009
Death: Aug. 18, 2009
Braelyn Marie McLaughlin, daughter of Hannah McLaughlin and Taylor Elmo, passed away on Aug 18th at the U of W Medical Center. Even though she was in our lives for 75 short days, we will never forget her. She was healthy and growing to over 6 lbs when she suddenly developed respiratory problems and just could not recover. She was surrounded by her loved ones, Hannah, Heidi, Daniel, Emily, Jeremy, Logan, Jay, Jana, Tessa, Kiki, Jill, Anna, Adam, Fran Rollie. As the tears began to flow on that surreal Tuesday afternoon, she slowly drifted away in her mommy's arms. We are comforted to know that her twin sister, Mya, who passed away exactly 9 weeks earlier, would be welcoming her to heaven and in the arms of our Lord. We appreciate the kind thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Let’s discuss some facts…..
