Faya was born with a respiratory illness and was taken care of by Riley Children’s Hospital for most of her life before she was recently transported and under the care of the Center for Hospice Care in Mishawaka. As young as she was, she had a strong spirit and was always very alert of her surroundings. Faya showed quite a bit of attitude at times and had an amazing strong grip for a little one. She loved interacting with her family and was always very curious. Faya had a beautiful smile that could light up a room and even said her first word that her mother was blessed enough to hear, “Mommy.” Although she only stayed on this earth for a little while, she left an imprint on the hearts of her loving parents and family with her tiny footprints. Faya was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
