2012 June - Aria MacDonald

Archive for June, 2012

A year ago today

A year ago today we say goodbye to our oldest daughter, Aria MacDonald.


That day was terribly sad and terribly amazing as we experienced God’s love in a really powerful way.

Aria was such an amazing girl.  We asked so much of her and she delivered her best fight every time with courage and strength.  She never complained about her life which was very difficult.  Her sense of humour was a real hoot and her smile just filled our heart with joy.

On the 20th of June 2011 God decided that our time parenting Aria was over.  It hurts a lot still and there are many tears and hard days.

We are so grateful to our teams at Starship and UNMC for their hard work.  We miss them too actually, they are a part of our hearts always.

Our family went to the Zoo today and had a lovely time.  Again, God’s grace so heavy on us today that He could turn this day into something special.  We also had a nice family dinner and a time of prayer and singing.


Thank you for your support and remembering of Aria too.

PS Sylvie’s biopsy came back all clear!  Good news, no hirschsprungs disease.
