Transformation: Lilly Grace

In 2014 a little girl arrived at New Day and we named her Ava.

Ava was born with Down Syndrome and heart disease and we immediately fell in love with her.

We know now Ava as Lilly Grace and are so excited as she is about to join her forever family.

As Lilly Grace grew up we loved watching her learn, explore, and discover new things.

We celebrated each birthday and holiday with Lilly Grace letting her know how loved and important she was.

We were so excited when Lilly Grace was able to begin preschool knowing that it would continue to open new dooors of opportunity for her.

Lilly Grace was able to join a local foster family and she thrived in the family environment they were able to provide for her.

Lilly Grace always worked so hard in therapy and we were her biggest cheerleaders as she reached each new milestone.

And, as many of you know from the video that quickly spread across Facebook, Lilly Grace loves looking at herself in the mirror and her joy is contagious.

We will all miss this sweet girl but are so excited for her bright, beautiful future!

Aerin's Hard Work

Aerin has been working so hard in therapy lately. Everyday she works on stretching and increasing her flexibility. 

She often has a smile on her face, but sometimes her funny side comes out and she makes faces that make us all laugh!

One of the reasons therapy is so fun is because there are so many cool toys to play with. 

Aerin, we're so proud of you and how hard you're working!
