If you have never had a chance to read my daughter Mackenzie's blog about Lily...you are really missing out. She wrote the most beautiful post about Lily for her birthday, and all I can say is I am so proud of my girl it hurts.
Kenzie is 18 and about the prettiest girl on the planet... she loves God with all her heart, and she is one of the biggest blessings in my life.
She is the photographer behind all the beautiful pictures of Lily on this blog, and she doesn't even charge me a dime! Well, usually ;) She was also the very first person to see and hold Lily, as she delivered her.
She knew even before I did that Lily had Down syndrome. Although I think she initially grieved harder than any of us, she loved Lily fiercely and protectively, and sometimes I wonder if Lily thinks she has two mamas- her sister and me.
I hope you take the time to go read her special birthday post for Lily... and that it blesses your heart like it did mine.
I also want to thank you for all of your emails and kind words and prayers and blogging on behalf of Olga. I know with so much love out there, that her family has to be right around the corner.
P.S. Birthday pics coming soon!
