Corinne Sophia was born on July 12th, 2011 at 1:27pm into the loving arms of her parents Emily and Ryan Moll at Mercy in Rogers, AR. Corinne immediately had medical complications and was helicoptered by the Angel One team to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. After several days of medical testing and amazing medical care Corinne was diagnosed with Zellweger’s Syndrome, a rare metabolic genetic disorder that affects normal brain development and leads to respiratory distress and in Corinne’s case heart failure. Corinne was back transported, again by the Angel One helicopter team, to Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville, AR so she could be loved by all of her friends, family, and big brother Evan. Corinne passed on August 10, 2011 at 9:16pm in the arms of her Parents.

Thank you for reading our blog.
Best way to read Corinne's story from the beginning is to go to the left and drop down July and start with "Weekend before Corinne's arrival"

Focusing on the Positive

So I know in my earlier February post I kind of went to "negative town" about how some of our friends and family haven't supported us, and although that is how I have felt at times, there has also been 100 times the amount of friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, church community, doctors, nurses, and strangers reach out to us!!!
I feel by posting that I made all those wonderful people feel like they haven't been there for us. So this post is to let all those people know that the cards, emails, donations, food in our frig, commemorative jewelry, ornaments, flowers, balloons, tree’s (yes someone sent us a tree to plant in Corinne's memory!),keepsakes, books, financial support, people who traveled to support us during Corinne's life and after her death, gift cards, gifts for Evan, personal stories of their loss, and most importantly the simple texts and Facebook posts have made this whole process more bearable! It has made Corinne the blessing that she was to me and all of us. It’s made me realize how your friends and family do rally around you in crisis and that kindness and selflessness does still exist in this worldly life we live. So thank you!
I know that I haven't always given the proper thanks to everyone but those will always be part of the memories I have of Corinne and they will never be forgotten!!
