It Happened!

We are full to overflowing with thankfulness that this day...a celebration of a year of miracles...happened. It really happened. It took a small army of amazing friends and family to pull off the perfect first birthday party for our sweet Ava-bean, but they did it. 

Ava did it.

And God did it!

In a miraculous answer to our specific prayers...Ava came out to play!! She woke up just as the party started and was awake for most of the party and long into the evening! Everyone in attendance got to see her sweet eyes and Ava was able to take in all the love. Truly, it was miraculous.

It's late and sleep is calling, but I had to post this sweet picture from our day...And what a perfect day it was.


Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
Great is Thy faithfulness  Lord, unto me.

Praise the Lord! I was so hoping to see a post from you tonight; thanks for taking the time to do that. I wish we could have been among the admirers today, but you were on our hearts and in our prayers even though we weren't with you.
