Sunday night (actually early Monday morning) Ava spiked a high fever and had a febrile seizure. Chris and I rushed her to the ER (so thankful for our wonderful neighbors who came to sit with the other kids). She is doing much better and is smiling, laughing and walking around just fine.
God has been so good to us. One year ago He gave me this beautiful, healthy baby that I didn't even know I wanted. He has blessed me so much with all of my beautiful children... but I will always look at Ava and see His grace. When I found out I was pregnant with her I wasn't exactly happy. I had other plans. God has shown me that His ways are so much better than mine and He knows what He is doing. Thank you Lord for giving sweet Ava to us and for protecting her Sunday night.
