Yay! We finally figured out how to get her slideshow on the blog. If you will go to the In Loving Memory of Allie Rebecca Brewer button to the left, it is now linked to her slideshow instead of the trisomy 18 site. We have a seperate link for her Trisomy 18 site now. The entire slideshow is about 33 min. long, but if you somehow have the time or can fastforward through toward the end, you have to see all of her smiles. It is an amazing site! This is how we wanted to play the slideshow at her service, but the setup didn't quite work out. We hope you enjoy watching her pictures from birth to New Years as much as we do. Thank you.
P.S. It was brought to my attention that people were unable to post comments on the blog, so I have corrected the problem. You should be able to post comments now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

We want to thank everyone for all that you have done for our family during this trying time in our life. There is no way that we could ever find the words to thank you enough or even know who all has prayed and thought about our family. Allie touched so many lives! We greatly appreciate all who have made donations in Allie's name. It means so much to us to try to help others in memory of our baby girl. I have tried to post Allie's celebration of life video on the blog to share with everyone, but the file is too large :) Sorry. Saturday, we somehow managed to get through Allie's service. Some say that it is due to shock, but I like to think of it as God having his arms wrapped around us so tight that it has cut off our circulation. We are pretty much in zombie land and having a hard time believing that this is actually happening. Today marked one week without our Precious Angel, and it was an extremely difficult day for us both. Please continue to pray for our family. I will try to write soon about our last moments with our Little Angel. Thank you again for letting Allie be such a wonderful part of your lives.

Welcome to our blog. We are the Brewer family and we have two magnificent children. A three year old son, Mason, and a four month old daughter, Allie. Our daughter has a chromosomal genetic disorder called Trisomy 18, Edward's Syndrome, which is typically thought of as not adaptable to life. She has already beaten the odds by surviving two months past the average life expectancy of these children. The purpose of this blog is to help provide updates of Allie's progress and other general information about our family. We are new to blogging, so be patient with us during our learning phase :) Thank you for visiting.
