Antwon and Marquisse Watson welcomed their first born, Alana Marie Watson, into the world on May 22, 2014. She was born at 24 weeks due to complications of pre-eclampsia, weighing 15oz and 11in long. Due to complications of her premature birth, Alana lived for 36 hours, passing away on May 23, 2014. Although she is not physically here with us her legacy lives on!
Since the passing of our beautiful angel Alana, we have been blessed with two rainbow babies. Our oldest son born in 2015 and youngest son in 2016.
"A rainbow baby is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds."
The Alana Marie Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on encouraging, empowering, and supporting families who have experienced the loss of a baby from miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
