So, I asked you all to hang in with me and I apologized for leaving you for so long. Thanks to all of you who did and hopefully the story will be worth the wait. For now, I simply tell you that I am at the hospital waiting for our lives to change (for the better). Hopefully in just a few hours, I will be welcoming my first niece into my open arms. It's a long story (one I still promise to tell), but this will be the first grandchild for my parents (they are THRILLED beyond belief).
Mandi, my sister-in-law, is being a trooper and doing an amazing job. I'm blessed to have been invited into the delivery room (who knew that was a possibility?!?) to witness the birth and take pictures. Since it's probably the closest I'll get to witnessing a birth up close and personal, I'm so excited. It's emotional and amazing and I can't wait to welcome her!
