Okay so it has been a little while since my last post but that means all is fabulous here in Ava’s world. We celebrated her 4th birthday today with family and friends. Her actual birth DAY is on Tuesday the 31st. I can’t believe how well she is doing. I can remember so vividly 4 years ago. My heart was so heavy but HOPE was so alive in our world. God has been so good to us. I wish I could take away her painful memories. THAT is still sad to me. However I’m thrilled in her progress.

I put this video together and wow did it bring back the tears for us. Ava has been through more in the last 4 years than most of us will go through in an entire lifetime. Yes the video is long (20 minutes) but I promise you it will bless your heart and give you a huge blessing. (Just Beware some of the pictures may be disturbing to some viewers.)



Here are her birthday party pictures of today.

Some precious pictures of Ava and some of her guests. She was adorable walking around telling everyone, “Happy Birthday….thank you.” I think she thought it was everyone’s birthday :) Silly Girl!

Grandma D lovin’ on the birthday girl.

THESE three adorable girls are my most prized possessions in the world. We tried to get a family photo but since the birthday girl didn’t get her nap it was not possible.

BUT since I know you want to see it here it is… not pleasant I might remind you :)
