She loved swinging

Saoirse loved to swing in her swing. From the very first time we put her in there and started her a swinging, she just smiled, laughed and wanted more. She laughed so hard, she could barely stand it. No matter how she felt, well.. let me re do that.. if she had just finished chemo we had to wait a few days before we put her in the swing. If I brought her outside, she instantly pointed to the swing because she wanted to swing. When she started walking, the swing was the first thing she wanted to walk to. I think swinging made her feel free. Normal and light. She loved the breeze as she went back and fourth. I always raised the swing high so she would swing high. I miss that smile. That laugh. Here, watch one of the first times she was in a swing.. it may actually be the first time she was in a swing..

  2. She is beautiful. I have been following your and Saiorse's story, and my heart breaks for you. I am a 17 year old high school student. Over the summer, I worked in a research lab doing Neuroblastoma. That was when I found out about your family. Your story inspired me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful daughter with the world.
