FOR JESSICA

I feel like Christmas came early today.  A friend has been working on a video for Jacob's mother these past couple weeks.  It is finished and now I get to share it with you all, and most importantly with Jessica.  I have watched it over and over again and am still teary eye'd.  This video is for Jessica, and when I heard this song I knew we needed to make a video... the lyrics are perfect.  Mindy Gledhill is perfection.

Lilly, you are a true artist!  I love the video and all of your work for that matter! After this experience I think I will need a video every year.  We are customers for life.  Thank you thank you for filming our family and putting this all together.  I Love it and I hope she will too.

- Grab a Kleenex before you watch.

Get the kleenex is right! What a wonderful video. I am so, so happy that little Mia was given such a wonderful gift and that she is doing so, so well. What a wonderful way to remember.

Seriously - Kleenex! Sweet baby Jacob was able to give the gift of life.

You are all so absolutely stunning. Mia is a doll.

Oh sweet Jacob and Jessica, we are so blessed by you both.

Meem, you are so generous with your love for Jessica. I am proud to be your sister.

I watched the video twice, cried both times then ran upstairs to hold my own sleeping babe. then watched the video again.

Aaaaa-mazing. Lilly is so talented, isn't she?!

No one could watch this and not be moved to tears by that little boy's beautiful eyes.

He and Mia are both miracles.

Such a beautiful memorial. I can't stop watching it and crying. I hope this video will be shared with the world. People that are on the fence about being a donor needs to see why it is so important. And thank you to Jessica and her beautiful baby boy. I know he will always be missed. You both are in my heart.

Oh Mimi, I have so much to say but I'll just say that video was awesome. Jacob, Jessica, Mia and your whole family are such an example to all of us. I love Little Miss Mia and all your littles. I can't wait to see you all again next summer!
