Noa Louise Green was born May 26, 2022 at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City, Iowa. She was welcomed in perfect peace and beauty before beginning the fight of her life. Noa was born with an inoperable congenital heart defect and passed from her parents’ arms into Jesus’ in the sunshine on Thursday, June 23rd 2022 at the age of 29 days old.
Mercy, strength and grace were the anthem of Noa’s life, and her light and story brought so many of us to heavens gates to fall at the feet of Jesus.
It is our prayer that while we continue to trust our Noa to Jesus, that our family and friends may begin to trust their lives to the same God who has upheld us with peace and strength and hope during the most unimaginable of times.
