Emily & Matt Johnson
On October 8, 2018, our precious daughter, Stella Anna Johnson, was stillborn at 36 weeks gestation due to a cord accident. Our world was absolutely crushed. Life was forever changed. Our family continues to grieve and miss our daughter every single day. The hospital we delivered at had been donated a Caring Cradle by an organization called Metro Detroit Share. We were able to keep Stella with us for two days. Our family, including our then 3 year old daughter, Stella’s big sister, was able to come meet her. We held her, sang to her, we did our best to fit a lifetime of love and parenting into those two days. Throughout the last year my husband and I became involved with Metro Detroit Share, we were even able to fundraise and donate another Caring Cradle to a local hospital so that future families will have time with their precious babies.
