Jacques and I brought Dryden and Soleil to the funeral home to meet their baby sister the afternoon after she was born. They were both adamant that they needed to see her and touch her. At the time we felt that Mackenzie and Lily were too young to grasp the concept of what had transpired the day before. Hindsight is 20/20, and I now believe that this decision has left a lot of loose ends for Lily.
Lily loves when I put photographs to music, and she could not understand why I haven't done this yet for Addy Hope. This video, is a joint effort between Lily and I. Together, we tried to memorialize the 39 weeks Addy spent with us here on earth.
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you
When you go through rivers of difficulty
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God.
Isiah 43 2-3
