If you’re looking for something uplifting (though sad), check out Baby Avery’s Bucket List. She was born with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) and given only months to live. As described at the Daily Mail:
Her father Mike had chronicled his daughter’s life in a blog, writing in her voice about all the things she wanted to do before she died, including wearing a big bow and going to a tea party.
. . . .
The initial bucket list included several childhood milestones, such as going swimming, going on a road trip, sit on daddy’s shoulders, have a birthday party, and stay up past my bedtime watching TV with mommy and daddy.
If you go to the blog, you’ll see it became something of a sensation, and her “bucket list” grew and grew.
There will be no more additions to the list. She died two days ago. But the parents’ love of their daughter and of life shines through. Worth a visit.
