Hello Spring

It's been awhile since our last post...we are not very exciting these days. The change of seasons and warm sunny weather could not have come soon enough! Springtime has arrived and we are slowly learning what has become our new "normal". Adam and I continue to move forward each day while continuing to grieve the loss of our baby girl. I have started to run again which is a great way for me to relieve stress and it also helps me think through everything that has happened this past year. Along with running and sunny days, my amazing friends and family have helped me realize that life is full of up and downs, some harder than others but most importantly that Olivia was a true blessing and she will forever be apart of our life.

We continue to be touched by everyone's generosity to Olivia's memorial and by your continued support and love. Olivia's memorial fund will be used to help other grieving parents remember their loved ones as well as provide a comforting place for them to spend with their child. I am proud that Olivia's memory and spirit will continue to help others during a very emotional time.

On another note, we are looking forward to getting a puppy this summer. I have always wanted a chocolate lab and Adam finally gave in:) Our puppy was born in March and we are looking forward to meeting our new puppy soon!  We haven't decided on a gender or name yet, but hope to be able to take our puppy home sometime in May.

Thank you for all your continued love, support and prayers! Happy spring!!!!
