  • This book is a recording of my thoughts and writings during the life of Olivia, our 4th child. Olivia had a condition called Trisomy 18 and wasn't expected to survive birth. Not only did she survive, but Olivia lived, every day, every moment of 14 beautiful months. Olivia taught us how to live. As you read this book, you'll be re-living those 14 months with me. I hope the life and beauty which flowed from Olivia into our lives will flow into yours as you read.Thank you for sharing this journey with us. -Nathan

Track Name: So Am I
When it's been far too long and I'm this close to giving up,
When the sun doesn't shine; it's far too gone and so am I.

When it feels all the time like your best is all behind,
You're counting days, you're killing time, you're all but gone, and so am I.

But you're still here, you're breathing out, you're breathing in, you're alive. And maybe life is still ahead; it's there for you and so am I.

We're still here, we're breathing out, we're breathing in, we're alive. And maybe life is still ahead.
Track Name: Olivia
I started writing this the day Olivia was born. I hope it conveys some fraction of the beauty and hope Olivia has brought into our lives.

You'll never know the feel of sand between your toes
Or laugh for hours till the sun begins to show
You'll never climb so high you're scared to let go
Or walk a thousand miles with someone that you know

You'll never know it, but you did, but you did
It's a thousand miles I never will forget...

You'll never know the feel of standing in the rain
Staring at someone's back who promised he would stay
You'll never break the heart of someone that you love
Or dance for hours till the sun begins to show

You'll never know it, but you did, but you did

I will dance with you
You'll be beautiful
I'll walk you through the night
Things are gonna be alright

This is life the way it is, but it's real
And if it hurts then it hurts till the end
Oh, I would do it all again

I will carry you
You'll be beautiful
I'll walk you to the light
Things are gonna be alright
Things are gonna be alright

Olivia.
Track Name: Inch of Water
Time is not running out
There is not someone chasing you down
You are not gonna drown

It's just an inch of water
Not enough to make you drown
It's just a rope they tied on
But it's enough to hold you down

You can run, you can fly
You have wings, you've always had them
You are not gonna die

It's just an inch of water
Not enough to make you drown
It's just a rope they tied on
But it's enough to hold you down
But it's enough to hold you down

Is it enough to hold you down?
Track Name: Rest In You
When darkness falls and I can't see
When I am blind your hand is over me, it is over me
And when I run and when I hide
Even there your hand is over me, it is over me
And when I fail, when I trip and fall
You pick me up, your hand is over me, it is over me
And when I'm old and when I die
You call me out, your hand is over me, it is over me

When the road is long, when all hope is gone
In the suffering we will rest in you
When the silence stings and it's hard to sing
In the suffering we will rest in you
I've tried my best to win for so long, so long
I've tried my best to win for so long, so long
When the silence stings and it's hard to sing
In the suffering we will rest in you.
