Three years ago today I carried this little one off of the plane and through the airport into the arms of family, so many of us just waiting to know and love her. There is so much emotion that swirls when I watch her today, her charming and charismatic little personality developing. We are so blessed to have her as a daughter, a sister, a niece and a granddaughter. She brings such joy to our days. This song by Stephen Curtis Chapman is a favorite and one that rings true for Ava. She is a dream come true and she is so meant to be here touching the hearts of others. She is perfectly, wonderfully, beautifully meant to be and we love you more today Ava, than you can ever know.
