Her youngest Aunt, Breanna Welch, only 10 years old, has started a fundraiser in Poteau, OK.

Here is story
Adeline Paige Welch, was born December 14th, 2017 at 7:05 P.M. She weighed 7 pounds, 10 1/2 ounces, and was 21 1/2 inches long. On the day of her arrival, Sweet Baby Adeline stole everyone's heart! Shortly after birth, Sweet Baby Adeline went directly to the NICU in College Station and had to be put on the ventilator for breathing support.
On December 16th, Sweet Baby Adeline was emergently transferred to the NICU at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas. On arrival to Dell Children's Hospital, Adeline was tested to determine the cause of her apnea and seizures, including EEG, spinal tap, and MRI.
Sweet Baby Adeline has been diagnosed with Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy(HIE-lack of oxygen) and seizures.
She had to have breathing support via the ventilator, IV support through her umbilical cord, and nutritional support via a tube to her stomach through her mouth. Sweet Baby Adeline shows some improvements daily, but remains in the NICU at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas. Sweet Baby Adeline's devoted parents have stayed by her side throughout this life altering event.
