A few posts ago, you read all about our Mia's great love, Il Volo !! I talked of their amazing talent, their gentle hearts, and their kind and loving souls. This past weekend (Oct.9, 2011), thanks to our dear friends Linda, Annamaria & EMI Vision we had the astonishing gift of being able to attend their concert in Melbourne, FL !!!
At every concert on their North American tour, Ignazio, Gianluca & Piero have dedicated the concert to Mia. They have shown the most beautiful video of her, their "biggest fan", and the world watches as our girl sings and dances with "her boys". The video was done about a month before her first surgery, and everytime I see her standing and dancing, it warms my heart. I know we will get her back to that point one day, and it gives me hope! After they play the video, Gianluca says, "and, now, Mia, you must be strong and get well." Piero chimes in with "one day your wings will be strong enough and you will fly to us." And, Ignazio, with his tender heart always looks so choked up, and begins the Elvis Presley song "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You"...a song they have no way of knowing has always been my favorite Elvis song. And, so the three of them sing to her.
At the concert this past weekend, it was so nice to hear Ignazio say, "our Mia is here"...and Piero say, "finally your wings are strong enough, you fly to us". They held her, they kissed her, and they took her heart on an incredible flight !!! Here, I'll let you watch.....
I know. Simply amazing.
For a brief period, Mia completely forgot her pain. She forgot her cast. She forgot all of the ugliness that this whole ordeal has given her. And, with every ounce of her being....she laughed, she clapped, she sang, and she danced.
You cannot imagine how much I have missed seeing her like this !!!!!
How do you begin to thank Il Volo for the way that they love her?
How do you begin to show your appreciation for this gift ???
Ignazio, Gianluca & Piero are loved by us for many reasons, but the way they have taken her as their own, worried about her, prayed for her and loved her completely is quite simply, God himself.
These boys are Mia's heroes. Particularly, her Ignazio. I do not know if even they realize how, they give her hope. She draws strength from their love, and they do something for her that I, Daddy and others couldn't at the time....through all of her pain, they made her smile. I watch her as she watches them, and I am amazed. Such, a tremendous love from such a little heart.
Both Daddy and I are so grateful to Il Volo...to their families...to their managers...their production companies...to their fans, and, everyone associated with them !!! They immediately opened their arms, and welcomed us to their family !!!
We will carry you all in our hearts !! <3 <3 <3
A few pictures for you, so that you can share this moment with our Mia.
