Drowned in our above-ground pool
Nicole was a miracle baby. Doctors told me I would never get pregnant, but Nicole was conceived and born on July 16, 2001. Nicole grew more beautiful every day she was alive. She loved dancing, swimming, elmo, art, the park, and watching disney videos.
Nicole was such a happy girl. She gave much in her two years that has made people who they are today. For that, she will always be remembered. Additionally, On September 6, 2003, my daugther drowned in our swimming pool in the backyard. Through Nicole, I have been made aware of how many children drown in Florida each year. In Nicole's memory I have become a resource of information for my community and an advocate to ensure that the State of Florida obtains more safety law issues to protect our children while doing more to educate the parents as to the dangers and safety precautions available to keep a pool safe.
