Lilah's Fall Festival at school

 I cannot begin to tell you how GRATEFUL I am to Lilah's school for loving her and accepting her JUST as she is. Lilah's teacher, Mrs. Amy J, has been a blessing to me and my girl.
“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.”
Mary Kay Ash

The people she touches and the lives she is impacting...Lilah Hope is a GIFT from Heaven.

Thank you, God, for my muse, my blessing, my miracle.

BUZZ on beautiful bumblebee!

Up and running AGAIN!

For over two months I have not been able to access Lilah's website... that I created. It was pretty devastating for me. I decided to take it back to a blogspot and allow the domain "Lilah Hope" to go...for now.
Having Lilah has made me realize that there are some things you can control and some things you just HAVE to let go.

Many of you follow Lilah's progress on my personal Facebook page. I am so grateful that you have been able to keep up with me and Lilah, my kids, pray for us, and see her progress. For those that have not been able to, I apologize you were unable to keep up.

A few things have changed in our life:

-From my last post you a few months ago, you were probably able to figure out that Aaron and I are no longer married.( I will not write about that here.) I will continue to keep this blog about Lilah, the truth about my feelings as her Mother,what she does for others, how God uses her, etc.

-After the divorce, I changed my business name to reflect what it is all about...me supporting my kids. I am still working on a website, but for those that are on Facebook. Please 'like" my page here:

I have been training to run the Rock n Roll Marathon again this year. Last year was the completion of my circle that I began for Lilah. This year, I am running for me...and yes, my babies. To show them that even though life gets hard, you can keep pushing and fighting and never give up. Just like life, a marathon is a journey and takes a LOT of work, determination, faith, heart and hope. Please pray for me to complete the race, uninjured, in 14 days. Nov. 3...26.2miles...Philippians 4;13!

Now that I am back up and running. I cannot wait to share so much of Lilah's progress...
*She's almost running
*Using her white cane like a pro(only been a few weeks in her hand)
*Singing up a storm(she LOVES Justin Bieber and Maroon 5)
*She started school. A typically functioning private preschool 4 days a week.
*She still has therapy DAILY
*is talking better
*her sense of humor is awesome. She is a RIOT!
...and she STILL makes an impact everywhere she goes.

Pictures and videos will be posted soon.

SO grateful to be able to post again...freely!
