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."
"I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made ...." Psalm 139:14

Welcome Rainbow Baby

We were blessed to welcome our son, Solomon David, into our arms today, September 15, exactly 9 months after losing Lilly.  Thank you God and Lilly for this special little guy!

Solomon weighs 7.5 lbs. and is 20 inches long. 

Labor and delivery were long and difficult, but of course worth it!  I will post more about his story asap. 

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . ." - Psalm 139:14
