Quality of Life Week -- Day Five

Lily's laughter. I just can't get enough of it, so I thought it appropriate to post this video of her laughing. Dave can get her rolling, as you will see in this video. This is how she sounds when she laughs really hard.

Thank you for following this week. It has been fun sharing these videos of Lily. I hope, in some way, that they can be used to slow down the "incompatible with life" mentality that others are so quick to assign to our children. I know, I know. . .the statistics. They are there and they are real. I do not deny that. But we never truly know. After all, they are only statistics. And on the other side of them, well, that's where our miracles reside.

  1. Thank you Jill. I looked forward to a new video everyday. No living person can ever be accused of being "incompatible with life." What utter nonsense. If I ever found the creep who coined that phrase I'd wring his neck.

    Some doctors seemed to think my baby was "incompatible with life" and took her chance away.

  5. Oh Jill, that video is so precious. So precious that I would like to share with you that after Bri had passed, I was listening to my iPod and this sound came on that just blew me away. Apparently I had recorded Jerry playing with Brianna the same way....I could hear him "getting" her and her sweet, sweet giggle. It's still on my iPod and when I have my iPod in shuffle and it plays, it makes me feel like sweet Bri is letting me know she is just fine. Big hugs to you all.
