“I walked right up to [Skye], and Skye was walking towards me. She knew who I was,” the newlywed later told Humankind. “I just dropped down to my knees and she hugged me.” Skye was aware that the bride standing before her was Hayden or, as she called her, “Hay-Hay.”
And Skye and her parents Todd and Talia Savren-McCormick had traveled to the wedding all the way from Ventura, California. Talia works as a teacher for the Ventura Unified School District, and Todd is a carpenter. The couple had married on July 15, 2012, and welcomed their daughter in March 2015.
But the Savren-McCormicks’ little girl is not like many children. You see, the toddler began suffering from medical problems early on in her life. Her parents noticed that she would often fall ill, and she had also acquired petechiae – tiny spots produced by broken blood capillaries.
