Thank you, Ava


Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live, to teach us how to give
To guide us with the light of love
-Alabama
Ava Mae Monahan came to us December 21, 2005, after a pregnancy about which everyone had an opinion. Dusky and unresponsive, small and imperfect, but a precious miracle that took hold of us that morning and hasn't let go.
Ava has tightened family ties, and created new ones. Deep-rooted connections that never would have existed but for her. Bruce, Geri, Paul & Arline, Matt & Lizzy, Becky--I am honored to know you and share in the love we have for our niece and granddaughter. She is a blessed gift.
