Oh, I am crying Charissa! A miracle, indeed. Thank you, God, for letting the Urbans find Ava and bring her home and love her and give her what she needed--a reason to move forward!

Wow.

Karah and Stephanie, No, I don't have a video yet, but I will try and make that a priority tomorrow. I still haven't quite figured out how to upload my videos to the computer off of my new camcorder, which is why the videos have been scarce lately.

I LOVE IT!!!! So excited for her (and you!!)!!!!! When Lily started walking at 3 1/2, it was one of the happiest days of my life. It opened up a whole new world to her as I'm sure it will Ava.
