It's Okay to Cry

Just moments after this picture was taken, we all broke down in tears. Mike too. He wiped his tears on her "be brave" shirt. She said it was the first time she saw her daddy cry.

We told her it was okay not to be brave. Be whatever feeling you want, Ava. We will be with you through it all.

She's tired and said she wishes she could go to heaven where she'd be done with this stupid fight.

It is tougher this time around. Maybe because we know that the cancer is aggressive. Maybe because we now know how hard the fight is. Maybe because we have already seen her go through this once before and our hearts can't take it again. We're not ashamed to ask for prayers.

I cannot stop crying while reading this heart broken news. It's Okay to Cry, It's Okay to Cry out, but most important thing is after that... ... Keep praying for Ava and your family. So sorry that's the only thing I can do for you now.

You are all brave. If jesus is calling our sweet little angel, let him hold her in his arms!
