The story of our precious little girl's 17 months of life with Trisomy 18 (July 4, 2010 - December 15, 2011) and of us, re-learning to live "after Lilly."

"Hello" from Sneaky Lilly

Today I got out Lilly's carseat so that I could install it for Rainbow Baby.  As I pulled the cover back to get the instruction booklet out, I found a surprising thing.  One of Lilly's socks!  I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry.  All I could think was - a sign from "Sneaky Lilly!" all the way from heaven!  (If you don't know why we called her "Sneaky Lilly" go to this blogpost

How sweet to imagine her little foot in that sock - and her kicking it off and it being hid from me all this time!  "Hi Lilly!  We love you and miss you so much!"

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going." - John 14:1-4


  1. Oh, how sweet. I don't often comment, but I want you to know I read every post and you and your family are always in my heart. Floating kisses to heaven (where she's probably running around sockless).
