God blessed us with 17 days with Amelia and will cherish every second he allowed us to have her. In her short time with us, she was given so much love from so many people. She touched so many hearts. She liked to be held and cuddled. She would hold your finger with a strong grip and never let go. Her favorite thing was her orange pacifier.

God called Amelia home on July 9, 2010. God truly has a perfect angel with him now.
