Most 4-year old little girls are not particularly interested in listening to country music legend, Willie Nelson. But Ava Adams is not your average little girl, and she hasn't had the easiest childhood. Ava was born premature at 27 weeks, and endured 12 surgeries in her first fifteen months of life.
Ava's parents, Brittany and Jamison Adams credit Nelson for saving their daughters life because of her love for his music. In an interview their local Amarillo, TX news station, Ava's parents explained that any time she was having a bad day, "you could play Willie Nelson or Johnny Cash or Ray Price and her stats would come up, she would start doing better just almost immediately,” says Jamison.
As Ava's love for the singer grew, she began carrying around a Willie Nelson doll that she can't leave the house without. The family is anxious to take Ava to a Nelson concert after they bought tickets to a show that was cancelled. Hopefully soon, that dream will be fulfilled for this brave little girl.
The family's message to Nelson was this:
“You have no clue how many times you’ve actually saved our daughter’s life,” says Brittany. “There were times where her heart rate was incredibly low. She was…cardiac, she was not doing well. She spent so long in there and it was such a long road, but actually just playing that music for her really, really did change and save her life.”
We wish nothing but the best for little Ava and her family moving forward, and send prayers their way. Hopefully Willie will be nearby in Texas soon!
