I took a post from Hayley's Facebook and turned it into a little letter for Ava - just to record the here and now. And because I'd like to think that she will read this many times over when she's older Smile

Dear Ava,
I am truly blessed with such a pleasant step-daughter! You often tell me how nice I look (even when I'm wearing my comfy's), you always tell me how much you love me, you always tell me how much you’ve missed me after being at school for the day, you’re always asking me questions which I get annoyed at sometimes but then I realise that I was once a child like you and I wouldn't be where I am today if my Mom hadn't answered all my 'silly' questions. You often make me forget all my worries when you tell me your innocent stories and you make me smile when I don't feel like smiling! We've spent a lot of time alone together for the last 7 months and I think we've learnt so much more about each other! I know things are not always going to be so rosy as you get older and go through all your phases but I just want to thank you for being such a pleasant child with such a loving nature and for being the best step-daughter anyone could have! I love you Ava Chloe van der Berg! All my love, Mamma Hayley xxx
Because Ouma Toms thinks you should know.
