My heart needs help
But I was born strong
Natural street fighter
Rough and Tough
Despite my size
Tender with love like my daddy
Mama loves the sweetness
Deep in my soul and prays
That I be made more whole
The world needs to know
Beautiful Baby Khole
This poem is dedicated to Kellie Elmore’s nephew Khole who was born 2 weeks ago with a heart defect. He is undergoing care at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, TN.

Kellie’s family is sure to love this poem. I do.
Oh I am glad you do! Kellie has a great idea going here. I hope our words help.
This is so sweet – prayers are definitely going up!
It is great to see the responses to Kellie’s request. So many pulling hard for the little guy and his family!
