Endlessly Grateful

Sometimes in this world we see magic happen right before our eyes. It gives me butterflies and my soul begins to glow a little when I think about last night.

200 people came together and said we see you, we see the darkness that we didn't even know was in the world until now, we see the beauty in allowing space for the sadness alongside the joy, we choose community, we choose light. 200 people came together and gave of themselves time, money, tears. 200 people in the rain, under the rainbow said we believe that having a baby in the NICU does not have to be lonely and that you can go home thriving. I am forever grateful for your trust and support, your faith in Love For Lily and your generosity which makes it possible to keep doing the work.

Thank you to everyone that made the night possible: thank you to the volunteers who worked for weeks ahead of time to make this event such a stunning success. Thank you to the sponsors without whom such an event would not have been possible. Thank you to every guest who made time and showed up, choosing community and love. Thank you to the incredible NICU families that joined us, you are warriors and now you are sisters.

How It All Began

Love for Lily began 5 years ago, on Mother's Day 2012 just 6 months after we said goodbye to our daughter, Lily.  Lily was born too early, on the fine line between life and death outside the womb, at jut 24 weeks gestation.  She taught us more about love in her short life than we ever thought possible and now her story lives on in our hearts & the work that we do through Love for Lily.

We are so happy you are here and hope that we can serve you if you are in unit at University of Colorado Hospital or Avista Adventist, Centura Health Hospital.  Or come and join us at Lasting Love, a moms group for mamas & babies from discharge to one year.  We are grateful to our core for this opportunity to serve this amazing community and shine a tiny light into the darkness that can be the life of a NICU family.
