Happy Birthday, Dear Audrey…


It has arrived, the one year mark since our Audrey took her first breath and graced us all with her presence. When I say “our” Audrey, that means more than Chris, Cooper and my girl. She belongs to so many people…to you. The ones reading this prayed for her before she arrived and haven’t stopped since. Even after she entered the gates of Heaven with her newly grown wings, you continue to love on us and show your support in hundreds of ways. Ways in which we’ll never be able to fully express how deeply we are moved and honored.

This post from one year ago tonight, brings back a world of emotion. I’m heavy tonight and I’m having a hard time gathering my thoughts like I had hoped I would. I’ll write again soon because tomorrow is going to be a beautiful, incredible day.

Why? Because it is Wings for Audrey Day. What an amazing gift that so many businesses have generously chosen to give. Tomorrow, businesses all over will celebrate and honor Audrey’s story while bringing hope to future babies by giving a portion of their proceeds to Wings for Audrey at Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Help support this cause by eating, drinking, shopping and playing at these businesses. Share this with your family, friends and colleagues. If you cannot participate in person, consider placing an order by calling the businesses, or if you would like to make a donation directly, click HERE (Be sure to Select Gift: Wings for Audrey).

  1. A year ago tomorrow morning I watched from my window as you and Chris left for the hospital. My heart sank as I hoped she lived long enough to feel your kisses and love. Not only did she get so much more from you but we all did. Not a day goes by that I don’t appreciate small things that would have just passed because of Audrey. She was a true gift to all of us.

  2. Happy Birthday little Audrey! You and your story have brought magic to life. If I could I would wisp you away and drop you into the loving arms of your mommy and daddy. I would watch you romp and play with your brother~ I would…. While your little soul has given so much, I can only imagine what you might have done here on earth long after your 81 days. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish for a little more. To watch from afar the faith and the strength that your family and so many others bring to you let’s me know that you know, that we know, and that you are playing a large part in all of this. Happy 1st Birthday little one~ Great Auntie Cynthia
