Mikayla Marie Adams, infant daughter of Alicia Adams and Daryl Palembas, died at birth Dec. 23, 2010, at Providence Alaska Medical Center.

"She was born into the arms of the angels," her family wrote.

Her family wrote: "Dearest Mikayla, you were a gift sent from above. You are loved and will be greatly missed. You gave us a lifetime of love during your short time here on earth. You are our miracle angel."

Mikayla is survived by her parents, Alicia and Daryl; grandparents, Jim and Joy Adams of Kingwood, Texas, and Megan and James Palembas of Wasilla; aunt and uncle, Krista and Trevor Evans of Anchorage; and the many other extended family members.

The Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation provided a volunteer photographer to record her time with us. In lieu of flowers, the family would be pleased for friends and others to support their mission to help other grieving parents through their remembrance photography at www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org.
