  1. sending many hugs and prayers.......

  2. I love these quotes. They bring back so many memories!


  3. Those quotes are great!!! As a mom with a brain injured child...I understand some of your pain. I am so grateful that you are so strong and so brave. I gain needed strength from your strength. It may sound weird and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but it is helpful to know that I'm not alone. Most people don't understand for a second what I go through in a day, but I know you do. Thanks for allowing us to continue with you on your journey. I pray for Aviana daily!
