This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Gabriel Orlovetz who was born in Oklahoma on March 05, 2006 and passed away on February 11, 2007 . We will remember him forever.
On Septmber 19 2005 we learned that I was pregnant. On Oct 26 2005 We got the happy news we would have twins. It was a long pregnancy that was hard but it was a great day when almost 3 months early we delivered happy healthy boy by c-section. Gabriel was born first on MArch 5th at 4:58p.m. he was only 2lbs 10 oz and 15 inches long. Michael came 2 minutes later at 2lbs 8 oz and 14 inches long. They were both on vents and I.V.'s but stable. It was hard to leave the hospital 4 days later and not be able to take my babies with me. But I drove the 1.5 hrs one way each day to see them. Gabriel grew stronger and healthier everyday. He was born with a heart condition and had 2 open heart surgeries as well as a g-tube for feeding among many other smaller proceedures. He was able to come home to his whole family when he was 4 months old. He only got to stay home a little over a month before he had to go back into the hospital. He did not recover as well as to be expected and had to stay for over a month. When he finally came home it was time for the holidays and we were so happy to be able to spend them together as a family.
Gabriel was known for his warm personality. He was always smiling even in the hospital the nurses would say they had never seen a baby go through so much and be so happy. He touched everyone that met him and will be remember forever.
His favorite color was yellow and it seemed his favorite toys were all yellow. While most babies like soft blankets he claimed a heavey wool blanket for his own.
I love my son and know that he loves me as well, But there is no argueing the fact that he was Daddy's boy. I can remember one of the few times he was just upset and in pain. Nothing I did seemed to comfort him. We were in the hospital and it seemed like we were all alone. I called his Daddy and put the phone to his ear and as soon as he heard his Daddy say that it was all ok and he was there for him Gabriel went peacefully to sleep.
Please remember my angel and light a candle for him, he was born without his wings but he was always an angel to us.

We all miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, wondering what type of man you would be growing into. Wishing I could hear your voice, hold your hand. To be able to tuck you in at night and kiss your check just 1 more time. I lo...
