"We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands."--- Kristi Larson

Today is Ava's second birthday! We are so excited and blessed to be sharing this special day with her. This will be her first birthday party. When we met her she was one week shy of her first birthday. We were told that in the orphanage they lump the kids birthdays together and celebrate as a group. So for your 2nd birthday it is all about you!
We had some of your favorite people as guests to share this special day. Top on Ava's list is her great grandmother,Nana. She has a connection with her that is so sweet. She is not like this with everyone but Nana holds a special place in Ava's heart.
Ava had a great time and really got into opening the presents. Jake decided that you would dress like a princess and he would be a knight. As you can tell from the first picture she was not wanting her photo taken! What a diva!
Happy Birthday Baby!
We love you more than you will ever know!
