Heidi Joy finally made her debut on her mama's birthday, Saturday August 2! And she is perfect.
8 lb. 6 oz. of absolute heaven.
Meghan (my daughter) had days of false labor, then a whole day of early labor, before the 16 hours of "active" labor. At 42.5 weeks, she was so ready to have this baby, but even so, could not have imagined the long, hard delivery process. I was invited to be with her for the whole process, and all I can say is....it was intense in every way.
When Heidi was finally born, it was at almost the exact time that Meghan was born, twenty-six years ago. Talk about a moment. I really have no words to express my gratitude and amazement.
Thank you for all your prayers and well-wishes. Our family appreciates them more than you know.
