Kids are amazing, without saying any words they take away all your pain leaving nothing but a smile on your face.
Aby Eli was born on March 4th, 2015 in Alabama and when the doctors handed him to his mother like this, and his mom realized her son didn’t have a nose.
But boy he looked so cute, Doctors had performed a tracheotomy on Eli when he was five days old, and they had been using assisted feeding techniques to keep him healthy.
He was also known as Miracle boy since, even though the condition is rare, he was healthier than most.
Unfortunately, he died at the age of 2. His father twitted,
“We lost our little buddy last night. I’ll never be able to make sense of why this happened, and this will hurt deeply for a long time. But I’m so blessed to have had this beautiful boy in my life!” Finch wrote.
“He finished his race a lot earlier than we would have liked, but it was God’s time to bring him back home. I’ll forever look forward to seeing him at the gates of Heaven waiting on me to give me another one of his famous fist bumps! I love you, little man. Rest in peace with my Father,”
Finch created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for Eli’s funeral.
“I’m a proud man, and I don’t like to ask for anything, but my baby’s funeral expenses are more than we can bear at this time,” Finch wrote, adding, “If we raise more than we need, the excess will be given to charity in his name.”
The GoFundMe has well exceeded its initial goal of $12,000 with over $16,000 (at the time this was published).
In April 2015, Eli’s mother, Brandi McGlathery, shared her son’s health condition with the world, telling Today: “He’s just like any other baby. He doesn’t have a nose.”
He was a cute gift to all of us, brought a smile to many faces. And fought against all the odds with such innocence in his eyes, it melted our hearts. We miss you, and may his soul Rest In Peace.
