Yes, I'm going to be an aunt. For the very first time. And in case anyone is wondering, excited doesn't come close. I'm thrilled! It is strange that my dear big sis who is only 15 months older than me is expecting her first, but we've already exchanged dozens of texts and looong phone calls to chatter about our excitement. My parent's infertility has taught me the value of a little one. And having ten adopted siblings who could easily have been aborted, I've come to realize and treasure the miracle of created life right from conception.
I took this picture with my cell phone a couple months ago....I like the message on it :)
I'm counting down the days until I can hold my precious new niece or nephew. And if you'd like to keep up with how the new mommy and daddy are doing, you can visit www.youngandmarried.net.
