Missing Ava Today
Two years ago we were delighted to meet Sarah from Freshblend Media, when she took our family pictures. When they heard about Ava's diagnosis, Sarah & Joe gifted us with a family photo shoot and came back out to capture more pictures with grandparents and then at her first birthday party. We are grateful beyond words. Two months have gone by so quickly, an yet it seems like so long ago that our life changed with Ava's death. We continue to cherish all the pictures and home videos we have of our little Bean and frequently stop what we're doing to savor the morsels we have of her life with us. Each one makes her real to us again.
her sweet curls
her chubby little feet
and those sweet kissable cheeks
Sarah graciously created this slideshow for Ava's memorial service and we watch it many times a week.
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!
