A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

Day 6: Ritual

I decorate a wire tree in my house every month/season for Julia. Some months the decorations reflect a new season and are rather generic. Other months, like Julia's birthday month, I use more personal items like cupcake ornaments. Still other months (like last December and January) I dedicate the tree to all of the trisomy children who are no longer with us. I enjoy adding to my collection of ornaments and hope to personalize each month to incorporate memories of Julia or things that remind me of her. 

The idea of decorating a Julia tree came from Lilly's mom of pray4lilly.blogspot.com.
