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

A Lilly memorial video by her big sister

Tabby created this video of Lilly on Shutterfly.  The music really adds a sweet touch.

Today is January 4th.  When Lilly was alive, we celebrated every month she lived on the 4th of each month.  We continued to do so after she passed away.  My husband wears his Lilly colored tie to work.  At home the kids and I decorate Lilly's memorial tree.  This month marks one year since we've been decorating her tree, each month with a different theme.  January is angel month so I brought down the box of angel ornaments from last year.  We have some new additions this year - ornaments we received since last January.  I am anxious to put them all up tonight.  For some reason I am finding it very comforting to be done with the first year after Lilly and to once again get these ornaments out.  It's hard to explain but it's nice to feel comfort in surprising places.

"For it is written: 'He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;" - Luke 4:10
