Ava is officially 2 1/2 years old and wow how time flies! As she continues to get older we remain amazed at how well she is doing developmentally. It could be easy to forget how her life started, and some days I know we both do. While this is an incredible thing that we are so thankful for, as a family we also do not want to forget all the love and support we received from family, friends, and organizations. Two organizations were very influential in Ava’s development that we continue to play key roles in. First is the Oakwood Foundation (hospital where Ava was born) which supports the NICU. We are honored to be serving on the board again for their annual Red Tie Ball on Saturday May, 2nd at the Fox Theatre.
The second organization we continue to support is March of Dimes, which played a huge roll, specifically in Ava’s lung development through the drug surfactant (MOD research helped in this drugs creation). This year Ava and our family has been selected to be the ambassador family for the March for Babies. The walk will be hosted in Dexter at Hudson Mills metropark on May 17th. We would love as many people to join us as possible! If you cannot attend the walk any financial support would greatly be appreciated. The link to our team’s site is below:

In general, we are just so thankful for our beautiful daughter Ava and the fact we have a happy and healthy child. Any funds we can raise and support we can give to organizations that help bring this feeling to other families we are proud to represent. Thank you again for all your prayers and support!
Evan, Jen, and Ava
