After two+ years of seemingly nothing but death and cancer, this delivery yesterday was a much welcome, and needed, addition to our family!
My sister had this little girl yesterday, red hair and all, and I am succumbed with joy and hope. Last evening after spending most of the day with my family and the little one, I thought about how deeply this has already changed me. I have more love for her than I could imagine, and I think I withheld being too excited for her arrival, for fear that something would go wrong, as has been the case far too often for our family. While she was stubborn and breach, leading to a C section, everything went perfectly, and both she, Mom & Dad are well.
I think about what it would mean if I too had an addition like that in my life, and it’s still in comprehensible to me at this point in my life, and may remain that way. Wherever my future leads, I am so glad to be a part of this special girl’s life, the first grandchild of our family, and a child who is an essential blessing that we all needed.
May your light shine little one.
