Cora Geraldina Bauer was born on Wednesday September 30th, 2020 at 12:05pm at the University of Iowa Hospitals. We fell in love with her immediately as she took her first breath, let out her first cry, and graced the hospital room with a strong spirit and beautiful physical features. She was truly perfect at 4 lbs 9 ozs and as the day went on she spent time with loved ones showing us so much strength. As the day passed to evening Cora took her last breath and as gracefully as she came into the world left it for a better place. Looking back, Cora helped bring into focus the importance of family, friends, and a strong belief that God has a plan that we don't always understand. "Cora Bora", we feel blessed to have met you and want to thank you for your every moment in your presence - we love you forever.
