Our Home...Our Sanctuary

Our home is our sanctuary. It is so calm, peaceful and revolves around one... Aviana. We surround ourselves in her - all day and night. Of course, we cry, together and with her. But overall - we are together... always.

We spend our time... 

wrapped around each other 

reading together 

laying together under her twilight turtles

talking to her

listening to my meditation app ; )

watching Suits



just overall loving 

It has been nice. Calm, peaceful, and challenging, but nice. 

We've been taking all of our pictures with our phones, and then today just realized we should have been taking all of these with our good camera : ( I charged it today...

Stinkin' junky pictures! Oh well...


  1. Jen, your heart is written all over your face. You seem so tired, so defeated, so more than willing to do the ultimate gift to your child, put their well being above your own.

    I'm so sorry. Please tell me what to say and I'll say it. Tell me what to do, I'll do it. Tell me to STFU and I will. ANYTHING to help ease that look on your face.

    I love you.


  2. No one is more loved than that precious little girl. Your love just emanates off that page.

  3. Jen, I am so grateful that you are surrounded with peace, love and calmness through this most challenging time.....I cannot imagine how difficult it must be and I am so sorry that you are having to walk this path. I hope the love that so many have for sweet Avaina and your family help to ease some of the pain. Thinking of you and wishing there was something I could do for you. Love and hugs!

  4. So beautiful. I'm thinking about you guys all the time. May peace continue to accompany you as you tread together down this most sacred path. Much love.

  5. Amazing and beautiful photos. I can't imagine what these days must be like for all of you. Please know that we are here for you in your heart.

  6. I've followed your blog for a long time, praying for all of you. I am asking God to bless you with peace, comfort, and love.

  7. Oh Jen I haven't been here for so long. My heart breaks for all of. Avi will always be such a wise beautiful soul. You and Dave have been through so much heartache I can't even imagine walking through this part of the journey. I wish I had words to heal and comfort. I love you all so very much. Avi is so lucky to have parents who listen and understand the unspoken voice of your child. I will continue to pray for all of you. Wrapping you in love and wisdom. Sarah

  8. Yall are constantly in my prayers. I pray for peace (as much as you can have). Lots of love from Georgia.

  9. The quality of the pictures don't matter at least you will have them. Thinking of all of you.

  10. Thinking of you and your family, and sending you love from St. Louis.
