Serenity’s Story

Mom, Dad, and SerenityAfter three miscarriages LaTosha was about ready to accept the prognosis that she would never be able to conceive, but in March of 2010 she found out she was pregnant again. It was a tough pregnancy – one that included a month of bed rest. But LaTosha fought for little Serenity who was born prematurely, weighing only 3 lb. 4 oz.

The doctor immediately put Serenity in the NICU to ensure survival. Parents LaTosha and Christopher hated being separated from their newborn, but thanks to the Ronald McDonald House they were able to watch over Serenity every day. The staff and volunteers at the House, which is just across the street from the hospital, provided comfort, relaxation and rest to them through six weeks of stressful circumstances.

“I was scared – I had already lost two children, and I didn’t want to lose another. I found hope and strength in other mothers at the House though – other mothers who were going through similar situations with their babies,” says LaTosha. “They prayed with me. They consoled me. We got through our trials together. And when Serenity started growing, gaining weight, and becoming healthy, I was more thankful than ever for the Ronald McDonald House – they kept me close by my miracle baby.”
