Happy Valentine's Day
   to Everyone our emails touch.

Some of you we have known and loved for years.  Some of you we have never met.  
But all of you have touched our lives in an extraordinary way, and we hold you all in our

There is no greater love, than that offered to another - with no expectations.  You have
all loved our child, for no other reason than she needed you.  You have restored our
belief in the goodness of humanity, and given us hope when we had none.  

Each of you is blessed with a kind heart, giving soul and generous spirit.  We, in turn,
have been blessed to know you.   

On this day that we all celebrate love, our family wanted to tell all of you...that we love
you.  We love you for your willingness to step outside of your own lives and offer us
support.  We love you for laughing with us at our craziness, and crying with us for our
sorrows.  We love you for your prayers, wishes and dreams on behalf of our children.  

In essence, we love you for your Love.  We believe more in that word than an email
can convey.  We hope in some small way, that we've touched your hearts as well.  You
have been a light for us...and we can never say "Thank You" enough.

We are sending you Love, today and always...
Alicia, Nick, Aurora, Ambrosia,and Avalon.

P.S.  The attached picture was taken yesterday.  We took advantage of Avalon's good
numbers to get one last portrait of her with hair.  She loved posing and being "pretty" and it
was a wonderful day.  Apparantly, though - modeling was rather taxing...she took a 2 hour
nap afterward!  Ahhh, beauty has a price....
Aurora - 10

Ambrosia - 3 1/2
