Determined to find beauty in the unfamiliar places. An unintended journey began and continues. God remains faithful through it all.

Introducing Ava Gabrielle Harms
Our girls names all have meanings or connections to people who are especially important to us. This little princess is no different. We've chosen Ava from the Hebrew word for "Life" and Gabrielle, which means "God is my strength". We're not sure if we're going to call her Ava or Gabby yet...we'll see what she grows into! I can't email them out, but have posted a few pictures on our blog from yesterday. She's under the Bili (blue UV) Lights (which isn't a surprise for our kiddos...they tend to be a bit jaundice no matter when the arrive). She's doing great...already getting some breast milk through her OG Tube (a tube that goes in her mouth and down into her belly, saving her the trouble of swallowing at this point). Yesterday I got to hold her for the first time...pure heaven. I'm ready to go try it again! Love you all, Sara
Created to share news with family and friends through difficult pregnancies, countless diagnoses, a move across the country and the growth of our family from two to six, this blog has become a chronicle of God's faithfulness to our family. We are humbled by your friendship and prayer support throughout the journey, and are blessed to have such faithful companions all over the world.
If you've been touched by Ava's story, please take a moment to comment, or send an email to BlessedByAva@gmail.com. We'd so love to hear from you!
