Happy 4th birthday Audrey!


Today Audrey would have been four. Though this beautiful little girl only survived six days, her life continues on through the incredible gift she gave to Addison. We remember her today and every day.

We have always talked about Audrey with Addison. She says Audrey is looking down at her from up in the sky and she knows we send balloons up there for her birthday. A few months ago, we walked past a Buddhist shop where someone was sitting outside burning paper offerings for their deceased loved ones. The Princess was most intrigued by the fire and she had a lot of questions. I tried to explain it to her as best as I could. She thought about it for a moment and then asked if she could send a drawing up to Audrey that way. Aaron came up with a better solution that did not involve flames. We taped the picture to two balloons and floated them up to Audrey. (Technically they arrived a day early since we had the ceremony yesterday before we left on our trips.)


So happy birthday sweet Audrey. Hope you enjoy the balloons Addison picked out just for you, and the drawing she made just for you.

Elaine, Aaron and Addison
