If You Keep on Believing

We are getting ready for Ava's One Year Post Transplant party. It will be themed after Cinderella's Ball. I guess it goes without saying that every chance we have to celebrate her life is a bitter-sweet moment knowing all that we know. We wanted to invite every single one of you but our list was limited to whatever space we had in our church's gymnasium. We plan on having her party streamed live so please stay tuned for how you can join us remotely as we thank God for the year he has given us with our girl, Ava.

Ava will be dancing with her daddy to this song:

"A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're feeling small, yeah
Alone in the night you whisper
Thinking no one can hear you at all
You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you


Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true"


It is beautiful and hard to hear. Yes, Lord. Please make our dreams come true.

It was fun shopping for a dress for Ava to wear to her Cinderella themed transplant party. Shhh, it's a secret though. All she knows is that she gets to wear a pretty dress!

The first pair of heels I bought for my girl, Ava. In my defense, she has been begging for heels for ages now. I wonder where she gets it from...;) I pray there will be many more occasions for her to wreck her feet with heels in the future. She wanted to wear them to Chikfila yesterday. My answer: heeeck, no. #notonmywatch
