Addie’s Angels was created through a desire by two grieving parents. After the loss of their angel daughter, Adelyn (Addie), the Thompsons saw a lack of mental health services surrounding pregnancy, pregnancy loss, and child loss. They formed Addie’s Angels to help provide additional mental health services to the community.
Addie's Angels is dedicated to the memory of
Adelyn "Addie" Rose Thompson
We love you and miss you more than you will ever know.
Mommy and Daddy
In the early morning hours of February 3rd, 2020, Adelyn "Addie" Rose Thompson was born into this world via an emergency Cesarean Delivery. Ashley had been suffering from worsening pre-eclampsia symptoms and was scheduled for an early delivery at 37 weeks on February 6th, 2020. On the evening of February 2nd Ashley started to experience bleeding and continuous abdominal pain and went to the Sanford Family Birth Center. She was admitted for delivery of her daughter. Unfortunately, by the time a Cesarean "C-Code" was called it was too late for Adelyn, and she was unable to live without life support. Later it was found that during the night Ashley suffered from a placenta abruption, which was originally misdiagnosed as labor.
Adelyn's family gathered at the hospital where a baptism was performed by a dear family friend. Adelyn's family got to hold Adelyn and say their goodbyes. After just 11 short hours, Adelyn passed away in the loving arms of her mother, Ashley, and father, Chad.
After Adelyn's passing, Ashley and Chad, swore they would not let Adelyn's passing be in vain. Ashley and Chad chose to start a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those who have suffered a similar loss. Through this organization, Ashley and Chad keep Adelyn's memory alive.
