Hello and Welcome to........ For the Love of Lily !!!! I have started this adventure to try and bring even more awareness to a cause that is near and dear to my heart and soul !!! Shaken Baby Syndrome / Child Abuse effects more people , more families then you would truly care to think and sadly I say with the heaviest of hearts it has indeed done so to MY very own family !!! On 7/21/18 my one an only grand child Lillian Riley Chapman was taken away from us by the hands of her 14 yr old babysitter !!!! Lily was 2 1/2 on Dec.the 13th she would have been 3 ............................She never got to see that 3rd birthday here on earth with us her family !!!! A 14 yr old child hurt and killed my sweet granddaughter ??? 14 !!!! A child ??? How is this even possible ??? My heart is so torn over this as what is our world coming to truly when adults are hurting our children but when babies are hurting babies !!!!???? What is it going to take to stop this , to bring better awareness to this ???? When does the nightmares end ???? I pray each and everyday that justice is severed for our sweet Lily but it seems to just drag on and on !!!! How are her parents , and us grandparents and other family and friends suppose to push forward when we are still in such excruciating pain !!!!!!???? Someone please tell me ???? No charges have be made an an ongoing investigation is pending !!!! I could not sit back and just do nothing anymore , So here we are !!!!! I am saving up to start my own foundation in Lily's Name and Memory !!!!!! ( Funding will go to obtaining licencing and anything else that needs to be done to get this started , then all made will go towards helping the little ones who are affected by this , educating and anything else we may be able to do to bring awareness and support ) ........ I know it is going to be hard , I know it's not going to be easy both emotionally as well as financially but I will NOT let my sweet angel's death be in vain !!!! I will move heaven and earth to get her story told and let everyone know just how strong and brave she truly was !!!!! Lily this is for you pumpkin !!!!!
