Grace Rafaela McCormick DiMera is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Grace is the biological daughter of Chad DiMera (then known as Chad Peterson-Woods) and Mia McCormick. She is born on January 28, 2009. Nicole Walker was planning to adopt the baby but she instead switches the baby with the daughter that Sami Brady had just given birth too. Sydney is the true daughter of Sami and E.J. DiMera.

Storylines

Sami is left with Grace who spends the first months of her life being raised by nuns until Sami decides to bring her home. Sami tells everyone that she adopted the child so she could protect Grace from becoming a DiMera. Sami had planned to tell E.J. that Grace was his biological daughter, but Grace dies from bacterial meningitis on June 9, 2009. Months after her death the truth is revealed that Grace is the biological daughter of Chad and Mia and that Sydney is the biological daughter of E.J. and Sami.

Today even though the truth has been revealed about Grace's biological parents, Sami and Rafe still consider Grace their daughter, keeping a shrine in their house and Sami wearing a charm bracelet with each of her kids birthstones, including Grace's.

As of January 2010, the name on Grace's headstone was changed to Grace McCormick-Woods, in honor of her biological parents. It is unknown if the name was changed again after Chad discovered he was a DiMera. On May 22, 2013; Arianna Horton was born, daughter of Will Horton and Gabi Hernandez and they gave their daughter Arianna the middle name Grace to honor Grace's memory through the authority and permission of her father, Chad. Chad didn't hesitate in allowing it to happen and when he held Arianna she reminded him so much of his daughter and he told Gabi and Will on how still to this day, every time he sees a young girl running around, he pictures seeing Grace at that age if she were still alive, showing on how he has never stopped mourning his daughter. In 2014, during Arianna's christening, Will and Gabi made Sonny and Abby Arianna's Godparents. The day Chad found out he was Stefano DiMera's son, he and Stefano mourned Grace together. In 2015, Grace's half-brother Thomas Deveraux was born. In 2018, Grace's half-sister Charlotte DiMera was born.
