we have some precious friends, who live in Colorado Springs.
Leith and Aaron.
they have three children: holden, hadley and averi.
their middle child, hadley was born
on nov 23, 1998.
her mother knew pretty quick
that something was not right.
by the time hadley was 4 months of age
the doctor concluded she was not developing properly
and sent her for an MRI.
what my precious friends were told,
was something parents should never hear.
their child's brain was abnormal.
and in hadley's case it was very abnormal.
a lot of it was missing.
hadley rae, or hads, or haddie,
as we all often call her,
has lived a long, long life
for a little girl with all her problems.
she has had major surgeries,
been very ill many times
and seemed like she was going to die on many occasions
in the past.
we have followed her life both live and in person
but mostly through a beautiful website called
we received this post

Heaven has another angel!!!!!
