A tribute to our brave and precious little girl Nalah, who lived valiantly with Full Trisomy 18. Nalah is an inspiration, a blessing, and our greatest love.
A POEM FOR NALAH
A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.
For a brief moment it's glory and beauty belong to our world.
But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it.

Talking to the Sky
Nalah often had these little conversations with the ceiling, or when outside, with the Sky. I was always amused by these conversations, and more often intrigued. I got the impression Nalah could see and sense more than we, as adults, were aware of around us. I do believe children may be more receptive to the spirit world that way. This is one of my many favourite memories. Sitting on our second floor deck with Nalah in the summertime. At home. The play therapy toys spread out around us. Having time to talk, explore, play and simply be together.
