  1. I love your perspective on this... that you have waited for this and even in the midst of all the challenges, you are grateful for the experience! That was a huge help and check for me as the last few days with Emmett have been tough. These little years are going to fly by and I have to be grateful in the midst of the challenges to experience this. Cannot wait to meet little Ava SO soon! You look beautiful!!
