Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

1/30/2008

She stole our Hearts

I'm sure you can see why. From the very moment we knew she had been born she stole our hearts. Her daddy is so in love with her. Her mommy is too. Her eyes just sparkle with life, with joy, with personality. Those cheeks beg to be kissed and they are at least a hundred times a day. That smile. It brings joy to my heart. Such joy. These tiny hands are the ones she has learned to hug us with and the feeling that comes over me each time she does is more than I can share. I love her so very much. Our hearts and our home are full.

I would do it all a thousand times over for moments like the one captured here. I would cry the tears, feel the hurts,kiss the boo boos, and long for home just to see this smile. She is happy and our prayers have been answered. Thank you Father for who she is, for what she gives, and for all you have done.

Just look at that face!!!! This picture sure says a thousand "thank yous" to you and Dave for being her mommy and daddy. She looks so healthy and happy and sparkles all over!! Yes Trish, you would do it all over again in a heartbeat, but I am praying you never have to again. God has so much planned for her life and your family's too. I love this little girl, just love her (and those kissable cheeks). May your joy and love be full to overflowing today.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Precious little miracle!

(Yay for being on the chart!! I always hold my breath when Kate has an appt. We aren't there yet. She and Ash are so close in age and about the same size. Kate just hit 24 lbs.)

Love,

Jule White

She stole my heart too...I have followed her story for 1 1/2 years now and have laughed and loved and cried through it all. I feel so part of your family. I hope you will continue to post your thoughts and tons of pictures of her as you go about your "normal" lives now.

I would love to see pictures of your home sweet home in TX too! (please!)

Your daughter is absolutely beautiful beyond words!! I have never met her and that picture alone is enough to make a stranger fall in love with her!!
