My gorgeous Ashlea - smiling for the camera. I love her cheeky personality.
Having Ashlea has completely changed my life. I know a lot of people would assume that many of the changes that come with having a child with a disability are negative - but let me assure you they are not. The vast majority are positive. I am so grateful for the clarity that Ashlea brings to my life. She really makes it easy to see what is and isn't important. Worldly success and achievements are not what is important. Love is what is important. Relationships are what are important. Having a sure and certain hope for eternity is what is important. Ashlea isn't going to be 'successful' in the way this world defines success - but that doesn't matter. She is loved. She loves. She will be in heaven one day - with a perfectly healed body and mind. That is what is important.
I can't imagine life without this gorgeous girl.
