The Day I Felt Heaven…

This time a year ago we were shopping up a storm in preparation f0r Ava’s imminent arrival.

This time a year ago, we were preparing to meet our BM. She’d fling her arms around me and I’d feel heaven – aka Ava, as our BM flung her arms around me, sobbing, and pressed her heavily pregnant belly against me.

And today I uploaded some of the amatuer photo’s from Ava’s birthday party, so here’s a sneak peak. The professional ones will follow in the new year.
