As we celebrated our daughter's return home following surgery (she had skull surgery due to a condition called craniosyntosis), we looked forward to finding out whether we would be having a niece or nephew in September. My BIL and SIL would be finding out the gender of their baby and we were pumped.
What came next was a shock to say the least....more
In less than a week, my firstborn child, my baby girl Ava will turn 4. While this isn't often considered a major milestone, it is still very dear to my heart, being her mother and all. It got me thinking about how good we have it here in North America. I feel fortunate to live in a country where we have access to things such as clean water, nutritious food and medical care.
