Not surprisingly, when Lily is out in public, she attracts a lot of attention. Most people just look, and most of those with smiles, but every now and again, someone stops long enough to ask. Almost always, we end up with another friend.
This happened a lot today. We ran into the pastor friend of one of our heart transplant friends (Frank), someone we've never met before. We made a new friend from Utah (Michelle), and a new Disney employee friend (Alyson). All of these people instantly fell in love with Lily and her story. It's hard not to. It's hard not to fall in love with a little girl who loves life so much that she'd fight so hard for it.
It also adds a lot to our experience to make these friends, to permanently add to our lives through these shared wonderful experiences. So Frank, Michelle and your two lovely sons, and Alyson, thank you for sharing in our day. It means so much to us.
