Our Village

We welcomed Avery Grace Bottoms into the world on 27 August… just over two months ago. In those two short months, she has brought much joy and fullness to each and every day.

Parenthood brings its own set of challenges, and such a steep learning curve! We are so lucky to be surrounded by people who adore Avery. They have helped us adapt by sharing their time, cuddles, wisdom, and love.

As one of the moms said earlier this week, Avery will soon visit her “really, really” home. She will also meet her “really” family for the first time. In the meantime, we’re feeling so grateful for our farm family. We’ve heard it takes a village to raise a child. This is our village, and we couldn’t do it without them!


  1. Feeling blessed that she is so loved, by so many in her first home. So looking forward to her bringing Mom and Dad home for a visit to her forever home. Love you all.♡♡♡

  2. So wonderful to see all the pictures and your loving communtiy. What an adventure!

  3. She's so cute!!! It's so great to see all of the pictures! Can't wait to see you all soon! :)
