    It’s such an incredible, humble gesture from you to go and talk about what you and James’ve gone through.
    I can imagine how comforting must have been for Ava’s mother to being able to share her experience, to feel that there are people that actually knows what it is like to have a son/daughter in the NICU.

    Sabrina from Argentina

    What a great thing to be a part of. I really wish I lived near you. I am A+ and would gladly donate to little Ava. I hope she pulls through. If you can, please update us on her.

    I am grateful for the wonderful opportunity which the Lord gave you to share about your life with James and to share about the eternal life which God gives us through Christ. The butterscotch pudding is an incredible word picture! Thank you friends!
