Adalyn Nicole Zisa



Adalyn was born on New Year’s Day 2018. She came into the world quickly and she lived her life the same way. She was curious about the world around her. From the very beginning she was ready to explore. Adalyn was sweet, smart, loving, happy, and kind. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved to go to Mommy & Me where we would sing, play, and she would interact with other toddlers. Adalyn loved the zoo but mostly she loved the splash pad there. She was intrigued by how the water would shoot out of the ground. She would squeal with delight each time it happened. She absolutely loved the Science Center. She would play, climb, splash, and learn about the world around her. She was eager to learn and everything about this world seemed to enthrall her.


Adalyn was a Disney girl. The Buzz Lightyear ride was by far one of her favorites. She was always eager to take control of the joystick. She would spin us around and around, each spin filled with laughter and pure joy. She was mesmerized by Its A Small World. As the boat would move slowly through each country, she would point with excitement about all that she was seeing. Even with all the rides that Disney has to offer, Adalyn's favorite ride of all was the Monorail. She would sit in her stroller and hold onto the pole as soon as it began to move. It was as though she knew

the rules for safety and she would smile at me while wearing her sunglasses (her fishys). Adalyn absolutely loved to be outside. It was an adventure to collect sticks, water the plants, and sniff the flowers. She loved walks around the neighborhood, riding in her push tricycle while waving at the neighbors and ringing the tricycle bell.


Those that knew her were blessed by her life.  Adalyn touched the lives of everyone around her, so many that she would only ever cross paths with. She brightened everyone’s day with her infectious smile, her sweet giggle, and her squeal of delight. She was her Mama's girl and her Dada's world. Adalyn was a bright light in this world, a light that would continue to shine from Heaven. In her short 17 months on Earth, she would inspire a legacy of kindness and hope. Adalyn's name would soon be said all around the world. She is a little girl with a big legacy. The Acts For Adalyn Foundation is the beauty that comes from the ash.


"Even in heaven my baby you'll be..."
