Olivia: Grieving for a Child
Editor’s Note: this is one of three songs by Nathan Peterson we will be publishing. We believe they are profoundly moving, especially for those who have experienced the loss of a child
Nathan and Heather had a baby with Trisomy 18, also called Edwards Syndrome, a chromosomal disorder, which is terminal. They were told to plan for her funeral when they went to have her in the hospital. They did not think she would live till her birth. Olivia did live. She defied what the doctors said. And instead of dying on the first day, or the first week, or month, she lived till her first birthday. Then at 14 months she got sick. She recovered but when she got sick again, she was not strong enough.
