Shan!
I love that you share your girls with us via internet. THey bless my life. I was a nanny for 3 little boys for 3 years. The last year was as a live in nanny. THe oldest was a twin. HIm and his twin were born VERY early, and suffered twin to twin tranfusion. A's twin died but A. lived. A. had severe cerebral palsy, epilepsy and other medical issues. He is so fragile. My life and my families own medical fights took me from his family right now but, oh how I miss A's hugs, smiles, and I miss creating ways to make him be able to do normal things. A. and Marie are such sacred souls. I wish I had the blessing of holdign sweet Marie, even though I know you hold her close and protect her. Can you kiss her from a girl who just loves kids, who prays for her, and who especially has a heart for special kids.

BUt kiss Josie for me too ok? Because A. has an amazing little brother who has become such an extraordinary person from being A.'s brother. He is younger but in many ways the older brother. Watching B. I get a sense of what it is to be Josie. God hand selected her to be sweet Marie's big sister, she too is something special.

A. and B. and a much younger baby brother C. even at just 2 years old, I could tell he had an amazing character and was also hand picked to be A.'s brother. I know the new little one will too. We worry SO much. But God has a plan, a perfect plan. It says he goes before us and prepare the path for us. He is already at your delivery. He is already at this new little one's arrival. He is already there, waiting for us to catch up to say "i"m here with you". And yet, amazingly he is HERE NOW as well, holding us, carrying us to there.

PRaying for you family which blesses me through your blogging.
