Meet Ava Renee…seven pounds of adorable sweetness. Tyler and Shelby have waited for this blessing for a long time. After three miscarriages, plenty of heartache, and lots of waiting, they finally can hold their precious baby girl in their arms! Even though it didn’t always seem this way, God’s hand was at work in every part of their story. Their journey to Ava was full of heartache and loss, and because of that, they’re extra extra grateful to Him for allowing them to be parents now. All new parents have a special happiness about them, but these two especially. They were glowing! They kept calling her “our precious little miracle” and I could just see their hearts swelling out of their chest. Their very first baby was due on March 30, and on that day a few years ago, they went to Build-a-Bear together; they built their own bear to keep in memory of the baby they lost. And now, Ava was also due on that same date: March 30! God works in amazing ways!
