Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


Part 2

We couldn't have asked for anything more! This trip was amazing. So fun for our family. We laughed and laughed for days. I can't say enough about how much we NEEDED this time together. Our big kids are simply two of the best kids around and they LOVE their baby sister. Dave and I loved watching all of the kids have days and days to spend together with no schedule. Ashley couldn't get enough of them. I feel so blessed to have been given this time together.

Several times during our trip my eyes would well up with tears. Just watching Ashley enjoy the world around her, seeing the world react to our Ashley, experiencing the kindness of strangers who met our sweet girl, watching Ashley make her very first friend(so emotional to be her mom and realize she's never even had a real friend) and being greeted with her name by every single cast member who encountered her anywhere on the ship. It was all too much to take in without the tears falling. Ashley had the time of her life, and to be honest we all did too. I am SO glad we jumped head first into this trip. The memories made were worth every bit of effort it took to get us there. Living her life to the fullest is of the utmost importance to me. Every day I feel more and more pressed to allow her to live. If not then what have we done all of this for? Why endure the nightmare of it all if not to enjoy the world surrounding her?

I have so much to share. So many pictures, stories, emotions. There are simply not enough hours in the day.
