Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

From Holly

Here are Holly and Livi at our last visit to clinic before we went into the hospital for transplant. Livi had a long day and for once didn't want her picture taken. But this in no way represents how she felt about Holly. She loved Holly like Holly loved her.

My favorite Livi memory.... I don't know that I have one special memory of Alivia but rather a collection. Sweet Livi was a patient near and dear to my heart. I looked forward to every clinic visit that she (and her "entourage") made. I enjoyed the opportunity to care for and know the Livi clan. I first got to know Livi by making sure she had stickers after the "sticking" was done. I enjoyed trying to get her to smile and talk with us, even if it was signing. I enjoyed hearing the stories Emily would tell of the new things that Livi had done & learned. I enjoyed the "happy & pink steroid" Livi. I enjoyed the "playing possum" Livi. I could go on & on, I feel blessed to have known & care for Livi...I miss Livi ,Emily and "the clan". They were a truly special family that touched my heart and I will always remember.

You have to be amazed by the fact that these nurses, who care for so many children with so many unique circumstances, not only were particularly touched by Livi and her family but took the time to share their thoughts and memories. Whar a remarkable testament to dear Livi!

Also, Emily and James and family, you all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I still can't walk by a sticker display without thinking I need to check them out for Livi either....

God bless all of you -

I was looking at the pictures of Livi, my 4 1/2 yr old came in and asked me who the little girl was. I went on to explain and he looked at my with his little sad eyes and said, " I will think about her and her mommy and daddy, while I am laying in my bed." Meaning he will be praying.

We are still praying for you!!!

Another sweet post. Livi had some amazing nurses. You are in my prayers. I pray that the Lord will help you guys get through these difficult days. Thank you for posting all of these tributes to livi. It's amazing to see how many lives she touched. I know you miss your little girl soo much, and I know I could never say anything that would take that pain away, but all I can think to say right now is keep trusting God Emily and James. I will continue to pray for you guys.

We continue to think of you so often and lift you up in prayer. I'm saddened that I never actually met you or your precious Livi, but I feel I've gotten to know you (and her) so well through Scott & Angie and also through this beautiful blog. I continue to pray for the Lord's stregnth in your lives & his peace that passes all understanding. May you feel his presence today.

Your nurses were (are) so amazing. Livi was so lucky to be cared for by people who took their jobs so seriously and were so compassionate.

God is so good! This blog has become a sort of "refuge" from all the bad news and tragedies in the world, my own personal stresses and concerns, and even in all the sadness and pain of Livi's ordeal, what a blessing it has been to come and share with others, weep and pray together at this God-appointed "site" and realize how many beautiful, caring people there are. I know it gets better than this, but this is awfully good, for now!
