First of all I would like to thank God for this precious child, because she truly is a gift from God. I was so young (22) when I had her. I had no idea what I was doing as I became a mother for the first time, but she made it so easy!
She is 23 years old now and is every mother's dream child. She is patient, kind, loving and giving. She never expects anything in return.
She volunteers MANY hours at our church, working with the youth, each week. She also goes to school full-time and works many hours during the week at a cute little shop called "By Invitation".
She loves the Lord and radiates that love, wherever she goes.
While in high school, she began a love for art and is now a wonderful artist!! She would love to become an elementary school art teacher, but her main goal is just to teach kids art and share her passion for it.
Here are just a few of her creations ----
My prayer for Ashley is that she graduates from college and finds not only the job of her dreams but also that special someone to share her wonderful life with.
I love you, my precious Ashley!
