Today is Eva’s birthday!
I remember even before we found out we were pregnant with Eva, I told Lindsay how I was feeling like I’d really love to have a firstborn girl. I know many times dads are hoping for a son (which of course I would have been equally happy with) but I really wanted a daughter. So when we found out we were having a girl, I was soooooooo pumped.
Not only was that exciting, but since Linds and I knew her name would be Eva, we were able to call her by her name months before she was even born.
And Eva is the perfect daughter. Funny, passionate, smart, silly, sassy, sweet, compassionate, strong, and beautiful.
As you know, she was named because God made her to be filled with life and bring life to other people. I never imagined we’d have to go through the things we have over these past few months with her, but at the same time I have been blown away by how much God has continued to use Eva to bring life and love to people around the world. God and my daughter are an amazing duo and I can’t wait to see the amount of life and love God brings to the world through her healing!!!
While we’re wishing Eva a happy birthday today, we decided to wait until she’s healed to throw her a big party so we can all celebrate her 8th birthday properly…although she did get ice cream for breakfast, per our tradition… -Dugan
