Brin Isla Nelson was born January 9, 2024, to Curtis and Becky Jo (Remme) Nelson at the Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She was an active baby in the womb, keeping her Mommy up most nights and doing the happy dance when her Dad would put his hands on her Mom’s belly. Her family was so excited to welcome another little girl. Big siblings, Alyssa, Duane and Ezra, anxiously awaited her arrival, along with her nephew, Perseus, and niece, Khaliah.
Brin was born with a genetic condition known as severe pulmonary hypertension. Despite her short time on earth, it was evident that Brin was a fighter and one strong little girl. She taught her family how to fight hard but still stay calm through the storm. She brought her whole family closer together through love for one another and the love of a little girl. She reminded them how important it is to care for one another on this earth. The love, hopes and dreams for Brin will be carried by all those who loved her. On Sunday, January 28, 2024, while at the Sanford Children’s Hospital, she went to be held in the arms of Jesus.
