Letter from a student

Dear Avery,
     This is a letter that I got from one of my second graders today:
Dear Mrs. Ogburn,
     Congrats with your baby!  My cousins name is Avery!  I really like the name!  How did you come up with the name?  You're the best second grade teacher ever!  I think that Avery will turn out to be really healthy and pretty and strong!  I hope you have a great Christmas and a happy new year!  Can you show us a picture of Avery when she is a baby?  I love having you as a second grade teacher!  I can not wait to see a picture of Avery!  Are you going some place for Christmas break?
It made me cry.  I hope so very badly that she is right. We pray for you in class every morning baby girl and they don't even know why.  I want for them to be able to meet you one day-it might kill me if I have to tell them that you didn't make it.
                                                              Please stay strong princess, 


  1. I can't even begin to imagine what you all are going through but i love you so much and i still have this peaceful feeling when i think of you and Avery. Stay strong Avery. Your mom is the most amazing, caring, beautiful person (inside and out) that i have ever known. She always says any time she has with you will be a blessing and i hope she knows that you feel the same way because she is already the best mommy you could ever have.

  2. That letter from your student was awesome. It's-amazing how their little minds just go to work.
    Carey I have tried sending messages & couldn't get them to go thru, so I ask YayYay & she was trying to show me we'll see ..
    I loved the blanket so warm looking, Avery you are going to love it, I can see you carrying it around as your security ..... sucking your thumb... That's okay....
    We are praying for you every day & we just know you are coming into this world
    So we can love you & hold you close to us..You have a wonderful mother & daddy , & me ma/ papa can't wait to see u ...
