My sister is pregnant.
This is the most beautiful picture I have ever seen of my sister.
Happiness radiates from her entire body.
My baby sister...
is going to have........a BABY.
This is a much celebrated baby.
Her name is Lily, and I love her
so much already I can barely stand it.
We have all waited for her, dreamed of her, hoped for her, prayed for her..... since she was a cluster of cells in a Petri dish.
We have wished for Lily even before then, when Kelly and David were in the depths of despair, coping the best they could against steep odds, and doing everything they could and then some, to get pregnant.
We cried, hugged, and grieved with them when Lily's two siblings went to heaven. They are not forgotten. They were loved, and always will be. I know they are watching over her right now.
Lily is surrounded by love........both up in heaven, and here on earth........by Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, cousins, friends........and parents who yearned to hold her for years.
She is so deeply loved already.
Now Lily is just days away from her birthday. It is going to be a beautiful, magical day.
Just thinking about it brings me to the verge of excited, heart thumping, happy tears.
My baby sister is going to have a baby.
Her name is Lily.
And I can't wait to meet her. :)
