Remi Edmonds Speaks


At our 16-week anatomy scan we were told there were some neurological development concerns. After countless doctor appointments, scans, and sleepless nights, we learned how severe our situation was. After our 3rd trimester MRI, we were officially diagnosed with severe hydrocephalus. We were told we had a very slim chance of making it full term. We were also told if we did make it to our delivery date, we probably would not hear her cry and would get maybe 10 minutes with her alive.

Remi James made it to her full-term delivery date at 37 weeks 2 days. On August 15, 2023, Remi James gave us the sweetest cry when she entered this world. She was able to come home on hospice, and she lived for 36 days. It was the sweetest 36 days of our lives. She defied all the odds, and the Lord answered so many prayers.


Abel Speaks helped us with formulating the right questions to ask doctors, gave us advice on how to advocate for our family, connected us with other families who we have been fortunate enough to meet up with and gave us life long bonds with those who are walking this same road. They have provided us with memorabilia that will help us keep Remi’s name alive for the rest of our lives. We want to support Abel Speaks by raising money for them so families who are unfortunately walking this same road don’t have to walk it alone.
