One year ago the most precious little gift came home to our house full of boys. Our lives have been forever changed and our hearts rearranged by the absolute beauty and charm of this little pumpkin. She is a sweet smart cookie who interacts with everyone with her big smile and bright eyes. She is bubbly and fun, often demanding our attention with her looks and her loud shrills. She is so loved by her brothers and has challenged us all this year to think beyond ourselves as we accommodate new noise, feeding and nap schedules and the overall needs a baby requires. Ava has been a gift to us all….
As we celebrate Ava’s one year of being home we also celebrate how God has so faithfully knit our hearts to the plight of the orphan. It is no accident that so many connections have been made this year. Again today I stand in awe of God’s hand in this last three years of our journey as a family. WOW! There is so much to HIS plans if you open your heart and mind and simply say “yes.” Please click here to see what is next for our family. More little children, just like Ava, wait. They wait for you and they wait for me.
Thank you God for the miracle of Ava and her story, her life and her journey to our family. We love her more than words can express and we give you all the glory in bringing our hearts together. We love you Ava and all the love and joy you have brought home. In your smile I see hope. In your eyes I see promise and in your daily interaction with others I see a future!
Seriously…these photos melt my heart!
