Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader - not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon. - E. L. Doctorow

How do I describe to you how I feel? I never realized how parched I was. I didn't realize that my soul felt dry and fragile. I was happy. I was wishing, but content. I had Sugar Daddy and Thom. Things were okay.

But now it is raining. And my soul is soaking up each new day with a thirst like no other.

We got a video of the baby's heartbeat yesterday. She is nestled, safe in her loving mother's care until she ready to come to our waiting arms.

I am going to spend the weekend with family. Tomorrow we girls will make art all day until we are dizzy. We will talk about life and new babies and how the Lord works in mysterious ways.

I'll meet you back here on Monday.

Ben: Thom you will have so many things to teach your little sister when she comes.

Thom: (Thoughtful for a little bit) Dad, I'm gunna need a chalkboard.

Hi April,
It is Greer from Pink Christmas. I have been busy and "absent" from reading for a while. Congrats!! I am so excited for you. I have been praying for you, especially after I saw your adoption site. I am a birthmother of a child who was adopted many years ago. Every day I prayed for a family like yours for my baby. It is so neat to see the "other side" that I couldn't see back then. I would love to hear more about the baby - and I still want to make her a bucket so let me know when you have a name.

Loved spending the weekend with you, Ben and Thomas! Brian and I both commented that we haven't seen you and Ben so happy in ages. I know the waiting was hard, but I don't think any of us realized HOW hard. This new brand of happiness looks so beautiful on you. Keep soaking it in!!
