Mommy and Daddy are expecting a new baby in September. It is wonderful, amazing, wanted, special, and crazy, frightening, daunting, and stressful all at the same time. Mommy and Daddy have known for a while, but we chose to keep quiet for the most part in order to appreciate everything this new baby has to offer. S/he is not a rainbow baby...not an angel baby, and not a replacement for you. This baby is just like you and Ava...an individual with unique qualities and quirks. This new baby will never fill the void you left, but s/he will bring life back into a home in need of an infusion, and when the new baby is old enough, s/he will know all about 'big brother' and how amazing he is/was.
I love you!
