My Beautiful Granddaughter


Well, it’s been over 3 years now and I haven’t cried in sometime, it took me a while but I finally figured out that crying wasn’t going to help Hailey. I was there the day Hailey died, and I was there when they brought her back to life. It’s difficult to describe the overwhelming feelings and devastation that my family endured that day and the days that followed as Hailey clung on to her precious life in the N.I.C.U of Boston’s Beth Isreal Hospital.

As a result...Hailey was diagnosed with Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, as of now Hailey is considered non verbal, and she can not walk or sit without assistance. Someday we hope that she will be able to do all of the above, but if she doesn’t we are still very proud of her accomplishments and her determination. She is the strongest person I know.

Hailey has the prettiest smile I have ever seen. She is the air that I breathe, she is the sunshine when it rains, she is my beautiful granddaughter.

This is such a beautiful post, and I think the picture of her raising her arm to point is just glorious. She might not be able to talk or walk or sit up, but look at that! It's so obvious she understands! Wonderful girl, Gods gift to everyone.

How lucky she is to have not only her parents, but also her grandma to be so involved in her life. What a gorgeous little girl!
