Back a few months ago, my friend Lisa told me that they were going to participate in Dream Fund’s event ‘Wings for an Angel’ and she asked if it would be OK if they released a butterfly in Ava’s name. Of course I agreed and was honoured that they thought of our sweet little Birdy.
And I’m even more honoured because Lisa is a mom to another little heart warrior Jake who was born 4 months after Ava (we met at SickKids of course). Jake has been through a ton, but is doing well and is at home with his big sister Georgia and I know that Lisa has her hands full – and that they took time to do this for others just makes me smile.

And yes, reading about it made me cry a little, but only because we miss Ava, and seeing the pictures of the other babies that were lost make my heart ache for their families. But through it all, even though I miss my daughter, I know that God’s ways are higher than mine and I can cling to the hope I have for eternity.

Deeper than Sheol—what can you know?

and broader than the sea.’
