Not sure I was ready for an international awareness day to come so soon after Ava’s diagnosis, but this past weekend came anyway.
What I didn’t expect was to be showered with hashtags of encouragement from so many of you. I literally got tears in my eyes pretty much every time I saw a new picture go up. And for those of you who know me well know that’s something (I’m the girl who didn’t cry at the end of Sense and Sensibility).
The ministry team I work with at Cadre describes encouragement as putting courage in another person…and when I say that you all encouraged us this past weekend, that’s how I really felt about it. That you were putting courage in us to keep getting up every day and wading through all of this. Thanks for helping to assure us that we’re loved and that you guys are fighting for our family and for Ava.
