Today Olivia is 4 months old. What?!
Every single day for the past 4 months we’ve been tempted to focus on the fact that Olivia has a terminal condition - to distance and protect ourselves from the pain of losing her - to skip to the end.
Every single day for the past 4 months Olivia has breathed in and breathed out, loved and been loved, giving no respect to her prognosis.
And again today, despite what we decide in our heads, Olivia is here and she is ALIVE.
We have a lot to learn about living from this little girl.
