My Story

Olivia, or Livie as we call her is a real character indeed. She loves the Disney Princesses (Cinderella being her favorite and also what she calls herself!) She spends her days dancing and holding ballerina poses. Possibly a hint to a future career as a dancer. She also enjoys posing for pics and singing for the family. Olivia is known for her smile and laugh, but is also known for her stinky face and cold attitude change if she does not want to be bothered. This can turn back into a smile or laugh just as quickly as she can't not smile for any long stretch of time. We have seen her deal with the uncertainty of her sickness and the treatments as if they are nothing but a hindrance to her dancing and posing. We are all awed by her nurturing nature and more than a few times have had the experience of her being our comforter in times of struggle and angst. She loves to play on her favorite webites and enjoys a good book or even a ghost story told around a make shift campfire (okay just a flashlight with a blanket for effect !) Olivia is an old soul who loves children and finds the beauty in everything from a ladybug to a rainbow.
