Avery’s Birthday



Saturday was Avery’s third birthday…Its crazy to think that she is three already…She was born at 6:52pm weighing 7lbs 30z. and was 19.5” long…Three years ago on the 20th we had our sweet Avery Joy. Little did we know our world was going to change that day. Some might think for the worse but for us it changed for the better. I still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. I think will always remember everything about that day on her birthday. The ups and downs of it all, the head on collision with the brick wall….The whys and what ifs?? The pity party for myself, all the tears and the phone call with my dad…thanks Dad It helped more than you know:) But I had to go through all of that. I wouldn’t change a thing about my sweet Avery Joy….JOY, that is what she brings to our life and our family.  God doesn't make mistakes he knew what he was doing when Avery was born and I thank God everyday for giving us such a wonderful blessing!! I love you Dolly and Happy 3rd Birthday!!! 
"God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with Down syndrome doesn't TAKE a special family, it MAKES a special family."

Remember me asking you all what  I should do about her cake bc she doesn't like cake, cookies, ice cream or anything like that.….well  I did a Circus cake and that way she could have a lollypop for her birthday:)
