Dear Gabrielle,

We take you to the hospital tomorrow for at least 2 months, and tonight I tried singing you the song I always sang to your older brothers until they fell asleep when they were babies, and tonight, when we were lying in bed with your big brother James, I couldn't finish the song, and closed my eyes and covered my face so you and James wouldn't see my tears, and I when I opened them, you were both fast asleep. Thank you. And here's the rest of the song as I hear it in my mind whenever I sing it to you and your brothers.


  1. i love you guys...and love little gabrielle so much...xoxo

  2. Love you guys so much! Sending you all big, huge hugs. Xxoo

  3. Why does celtic music go to the depths of one's soul? Thanks for sharing your intimate family moments. It helps me to know it's real and not just a bad dream!!
    love you all so much.

  4. I agree so much with David, that this video reached deep into my soul and heart. Thank you Amy, as it is so beautiful and full of love and as Ainge commented "but Gabrielle doesn't even look sick". And basking in all your love as she is, she is positively radiant and so very lovely.
    We are all sending much love and prayers and positive energy your way today and for the next few weeks.
