This is so sweet. Over the weekend, Little People, Big World star Audrey Roloff shared a beautiful story of a young fan with cystic fibrosis who visited Roloff Farms through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Watch the video below to see why the new mama was so “humbled.”
Recently, Auj — who gave birth to Ember on Sunday, Sept. 10 — updated fans on her baby’s looks. “We think she looks like Jeremy so far, but she might have a little glimmer of strawberry in that peach fuzz hair. Only time will tell!” the curly-haired redhead wrote on her personal blog. “We are still hoping for boing boing curls though.”
Last month, Audrey and Jeremy got super candid about her delivery during an interview with Us Weekly. “Labor is such a wild and miraculous process and meeting our baby girl for the first time filled us with uncontainable joy,” the couple, who tied the knot in 2014, said. “We are so thankful for this little life we’ve been blessed with and cannot wait to see all that she becomes.”

I got to meet Elli today 💗she is a cystic fibrosis fighter and came to Roloff Farms with @makeawishamerica for her wish. When I met her she handed me her senior photo – a picture of her wearing an @shopalwaysmore hat😭 😭😭 She wrote me the sweetest note expressing how much “ALWAYS MORE” has meant to her. I am incredibly humbled and grateful that the Lord continues to use this message to offer hope, motivation, encouragement, light and inspiration in the lives of others. For Elli, #alwaysmore means that “no matter how I feel or what is going on, I wake up and put a smile on my face to tackle the day. There is ALWAYS more to that day or that time in my life. Christ ALWAYS has more for me no matter the situation I am in. Whether I'm doing well or not so well, He ALWAYS has MORE for me. When living my life for Christ He will ALWAYS give me MORE than I need.” Keep on believing in the more that is within you through Christ @ellishae6 [Ephesians 3:20]. #alwaysmore #makeawish #shopalwaysmoreuu
At the time, Jeremy praised his wife for the way she handled labor. “Audrey did amazing. Natural labor is no joke. I have a renewed appreciation for her strength,” he said. “And Ember is just miraculous. Perfect little baby. I’m In awe by the circle of life.”
When Ember turned two weeks old, Audrey said that motherhood has made her feel fulfilled, but admitted that it’s a lot tougher than she anticipated — especially the breastfeeding part. “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the pain that I’ve experienced while breastfeeding has been comparable to unmedicated labor contractions. Inevitably, all of this has left me feeling like I am failing my baby, frustrated, discouraged, and heart ached,” she wrote on Instagram. “But even though the tearful sleepless nights persist, so will I. I will continue to pour myself out in sacrificial love for this baby girl who makes every hurt worth enduring.”
