Olivia-Rose

My great granddaughter was born prematurely on May 23, and her first several weeks were "touch and go". We were all very worried about her, but wee Olivia was a warrior from the moment she arrived on this planet. She fought her way through the many serious medical issues which beset her with courage and the forthright tenacity that runs all the way through the tribe.

Our baby girl is blooming now like the little rose she is, and she lights up like a Yule tree whenever she sees her "Aggy" (me). She has a delicately curved chin, perfect tiny fingers and the most beautiful sparkling smile in the whole wide world.
