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

One day at a time, Ava is getting bigger (6lbs 3oz!) and stronger. One of these days we'll get to take her home. Until then, we wait, and try not to get anxious about things like timelines and possible complications. She is after all only 37 weeks old and she's quite content to pretend she's still in her own little world. She's slowly improving her nursing, and took her first bottle yesterday (I'll admit, I was emotional about that decision) but she refuses to act like a full-terem kiddo, so we all sit back and wait. Easier for me than for the Dr.s, and harder for me with the Dr.s hovering trying to get this party started! Hopefully I'll get a more thorough update tomorrow. I must sleep now.
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!
