Welcome to the World

Susan Anne Catherine Torres was born on August 2, 2005. This might have been just another story about the birth of a child if it weren't for the heroic story of the fight for life she has had.

If you haven't read about the story, click on the link above and read about how her mother went into a coma and was pronounced brain dead early on in her pregnancy and her father fought to keep her mother on life support long enough so that Susan Anne Catherine could have a chance at life.

This story has a bittersweet ending, after the caesarian section delivery of the baby, Susan, the mother was taken off life support and passed away after having been given last rights, and surrounded by family and friends.

Our prayers go out to the Torres and Rollin Families who are celebrating the birth of this child while grieving the loss of her mother at the same time. Life goes on. God is good, all the time.

You can read a statement from the families here.
