Ava had always been a quiet kid, but when Julie was around, Ava could light up a room. Even after Ava and Julie’s match closed in 2016 when Ava moved to another state, they couldn’t stay apart! Julie made sure to stay in contact and the two visited each other every chance they had. A “little” distance couldn’t stop what was destined to be a lifelong friendship. They have been there for each other for some of their biggest milestones yet! Ava was in Julie’s wedding and Julie recently attended Ava’s graduation from high school. Congrats, Ava and Julie! Thank you for letting us be a little part of your “big” futures!
