Team Liam Key
Duck – What is the significance of the duck? Even though Liam spent a good amount of time on a ventilator (on and off), he loved his pacifier. His occupational therapist recommended us getting him a “wub a nub”. We got him a duckie wub a nub, which he loved!
Gator – In Liam’s final hours of life we were able to bathe him. We cleaned him up and because of all his special medical needs he needed specific clothing. We made sure he had all his own belongings. When I reached into his closet and grabbed an outfit, the outfit I grabbed had little gators on it and said “later gator”. How suiting!
Our colors are yellow and green – Liam passed away right after Easter. At home his brothers and sister were tossing filled Easter eggs. They came into the kitchen and said “we know Liam’s favorite colors. We were throwing the Easter eggs and the ones that popped open are Liam’s favorite colors. They are yellow and green.” After some time passed and I thought about it, of course yellow and green are Liam’s favorite colors because his duckie was yellow and gators are green.
