Celebration of Life!

 

I put this video together to CELEBRATE Ava’s life. She has such strength and determination for such a tiny little lady. I stand in awe of her courage and fight. I have met so many wonderful people over the last few years because of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. I still feel like my work with CDH must carry on stronger than ever. Brian and I are planning a large Awareness Project in our town. Details to follow. I am extremely grateful to Ava’s supporters who have prayed for our family when we needed it the most. Her continued healing is my main concern.

I will help anyone along this way…for I know it is a road you should not go down alone. If you have questions or want to talk please give me a holler.

My Story~ CDH



This video was extremely hard to make. First of all we never wanted all this to happen to our daughter....who does? The hardest thing was to relive it all over again through pictures and videos. BUT if Ava's story helps even one person then I feel it it isn't all in vain. She is such a patient little girl. Brian and I realize often what a miracle she truly has come to be to our family. Her smiles are just priceless and they melt our hearts. Her surgery is in February and we are praying that this will be the "final" fix and that she will have very little complications this time. We just thank God that we am her Mommy and Daddy, that she chose "us."

About Me

My photo

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.
