I sent our Tummy Mummy and update on our little angel a week ago. I try to do this regularly, at least once a month, send her a page or two email with little tidbits about Ava as well as photo’s. I promised her I would do this, the day we said our goodbye’s after going to court, when I walked out the door, carrying her baby in my arms and she cried the hugest, most heartbreaking crocodile tears. I promised her I would and I intend to keep my word and so far I have, in 5 and a half months, I’ve sent 5 updates!

This morning, I received the most beautiful SMS from her via our Social Worker:

Dear Sharon, Walter and baby Ava. I’m always excited to hear from you! So pleased to hear that you are ALL doing well and in good health. Every time I hears such good news I realize how truly blessed Ava and I are that she has such wonderful, caring, loving and proud parents. Thank you, thank you, thank you… I love you both so much for what you do for Ava. Give that baby girl of ours lots of butterfly kisses from her tummy mummy and please don’t stop sending me photo’s. I do apologize for not responding earlier but I have been very busy at work, which is going well. I love and miss you all… God Bless, **** … A big squeeze and lots of love to our precious Ava from her tummy mummy… XXX

God knows I will love this woman forever for what she has given us!
