Welcome Louis!!!

I am so excited that I'm ready to jump in the car and drive up to give you a squeezy cuddle Rach. I have a habit of inappropriately hugging lactating mothers a little too hard, so you're in luck that I am some distance away!!

Virtual squeeezy tight hug,

i had randomly found a comment you had left concerning your sweet alice. i lost my son at 40 weeks during my delivery. i have since had a little girl, who is 11 months. i come to your blog, seeing your franz. this year will be more healing and reconciling then even passing that 20 week mark was for you in your pregnancy. where sorrow burrows into your heart, it does not fail to crevice a space for joy to come and flood it. hold that baby. all of my love to you and your family.
