Baby Eli’s auntie requested a little sock monkey for her precious nephew, Eli. Elijah Edwards was born 24 weeks, 5 days and is still in the NICU 11 months later. He is classified as a micro preemie, born 16 weeks early. To learn more about Baby Eli or to show support and send prayers, please visit his Facebook page (link), and please tell them Knitting Rays of Hope sent you.
Eli’s story has really opened our eyes to how amazing life is and how one so little is able to fight so hard for life. We cant wait for the day that he is finally able to go home and enjoy a full and wonderful life. We pray that day is coming soon. The sock monkey hat is going to be included in a box for Baby Eli’s birthday in May. We hope that the hat makes his family smile and know that people care about their plight. We can’t wait to see Baby Eli modeling the sock monkey. 🙂
