This video was inspired by Liz and Shane. Their daughter Nayeli also has CDH, they put all her ultrasound pictures together, which made me think about all Ava's ultrasound pictures. I cried watching Nayeli's video knowing that she is still safely inside Liz and her journey will begin in a few short weeks. Liz and Shane you two are wonderful parents!
I ran across this song, "I'm Your Angel" by Celine Dion and R. Kelly. The words are so fitting to this video. We were Ava's angel and she was ours! Please say a prayer for little Nayeli that she will not only survive but she will thrive as Ava has been so blessed to be.
I still get very emotional putting videos together. Oh how life means something extra special that we were so fortunate to have three daughters. They all have their own ways of bringing joy into my live.
The very end of the video says, "God on the mountain is still God in the Valley. Keep hoping and praying, God hears us!"
(An update ~ Ava's CDH friend Nayeli, was born in October and she is doing great. She too survived this horrendeous battle and is home with her Mommy and Daddy in California! Nayeli They have become special friends to us!)

This video was made in celebration of Ava turning two. I don't ever want to forget how she fought for her spot in life. Her courage is very evident. I once heard someone say, when I was pregnant with Ava, "Our children chose us." It brought tears to my eyes. That makes this CDH "monster" a little easier to get a hold of. We are very fortunate and bless that we have three beautiful healthy daughters. God is good!
- I was blessed to have three beautiful daughters of course by my wonderful husband Brian. We traveled a very difficult road when we found out our third daughter, Ava had a life threatning birth defect called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. This turned all of our lives upside down. We have learned that life is a precious gift from God and we should treasure each and every second we have with our loved ones.
