Emilia with her mommy and daddy. “Some people only dream of Angels, we held one in our arms”


Emilia Madeleine Rose Clough was born asleep on March 15, 2017, at 7:51 am to Daniel and Charmel Clough (and Big Sister, Adelaide) at North Kansas City Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.  She weighed 4 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 18 1/2 inches long.  She was born at 33 weeks gestation and was delivered by Dr. Raschelle Schowengerdt.  Emilia was nothing short of beautiful.  She had a full head of red hair and long feet and fingers.  She was and is absolutely perfect.  We can’t even begin to describe how incredible it was to hold and kiss her.  It is a gift that nothing will ever surpass.  Emilia’s time on earth was short, but her little life has spoken volumes.  She continues to brighten our world with sweet little reminders of her beautiful existence.  We are filled with an unbelievable amount of pain, but also an abundance of joy to have held her in person and to now hold her in our hearts.  Emilia Madeleine Rose, our hearts broke saying hello and goodbye to you all in one day, but we would relive this pain a thousand times over just to have you as our daughter.  We love you and will miss you forever!


“How quietly you tiptoed into our world, almost silently, only for a moment you stayed…

but what an imprint your footprints have left upon our hearts.”
