Ashlyn's Timeline

Amazing at how much Ashlyn's grown in just over two years.  Here's a small timeline of her over the last 3 years:
Ashlyn's Finding Ad when she was ~ 3 months old

Ashlyn's File Picture taken sometime in October 2008

This was a picture from Gotcha Day November 23, 2009

This is from her first birthday with us, turning 7 on February 18, 2010

This is a picture from her 8th birthday on February 18, 2011

And this is from her recent birthday, turning 9 on February 18, 2012
She has grown over 7 inches in the last two years and gained over 20 lbs.  She went from having no gross motor skills, nor had she ever gone to school, to catching up to 1st grade level by the next school year.  She has grown not only physically, but mentally by leaps and bounds.  Her speech has improved tremendously since starting speech therapy for her submucous cleft palate.  She has done amazing with every surgery she's had to endure since being with us.  It has been amazing to watch this little girl go through everything she has gone through and still have such a joy about her.  She touches everyone's heart she comes in contact with and she has blessed our family abundantly.  Ashlyn we love you very much and are very proud of you!


  1. Such an amazing transformation of an amazing little girl who has one amazing family!

  2. Love this!! Amazing how far she's come! We love you Ashlyn!
