Hi friends– Thursday was a day of hope and happiness. I had planned to come up that day to stay with our Ani and Brian on “baby watch,” waiting for baby Lois to arrive. But Lois surprisingly came 10 days early, safe and sound! Born the day I was driving 9 hours up the Interstate 5.
It was a glorious trip, singing along with Fernando Ortega (hymns) – praying and thanking God for her beautiful arrival. With the sun shining in the windows, I was in wonder, imagining all the days she has ahead…. And then, finally, I made it to SF. There she was, in the hospital with her mom and dad– her first day in this big wide world. She was perfect. Everything had gone quickly and so well. I am so grateful.
