Sweetest Voice

We have loved our sweet Ava and her big 'ole grin for almost a year now.  We've seen videos of her doing daily living activities (getting dressed, washing her face) and watched her zoom around with her walker.  We've loved her because we felt God calling us to be her family.  It's been a really exciting time in our lives as we wait for her to come home.

There has been one little doubt that has worried me...we had no clue about Ava's personality. She has obediently completed every task on the videos with that sweet smile on her face, but we haven't really had a glimpse of the real her.  She has not spoken one word in the 17 videos that we've seen.

Today, I fell in love with Ava...head over heels, completely in love.  No doubt, no fear!!  This girl is all Bamberg.  We got a new video and well, WOW!!  There are no words to describe our sweet baby.  You'll just have to see for yourself....

How cute is she???  Ava starts off reciting some poems.  Then she is asked her favorite food.  It takes several seconds to come up with her answer...chips!!!  We also got to ask a few questions.  Her nannies report that she loves her forever family and has no worries or questions about us!  I wanted to know how to comfort her if she is upset.  Their reply, hold her and feed her snacks.  Oh, my girl...just like her Mama!!  Guess we'll be stocking up on lots of chips for Miss Ava :)

As we fund raise and worry about raising enough money to actually get Ava HOME, it was amazing to get this video today.  Perfect timing, God's timing.  Isn't He good, all the time?!?

For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.  (Zephaniah 3:17)
