Emmanuella was back today...

with this little peanut.  He peed all over my phone today.
Both mom and baby are doing well.

Two of the Harbor House girls.  Adorable, aren't they?

Today was one of those days when prenatals ended and I thought, "How did that much stuff...great stuff...sad stuff...hard stuff...really, really tragic stuff, teaching stuff, learning stuff, redemptive stuff, make you sit and sigh stuff, and the laughing stuff happen in only one afternoon?"  A lifetime's worth of emotions held in only a few hours worth of time.

We have 8 ladies that could have a baby any ol' day now.  That does not include the little stinkers that like to mix it up and surprise us.  We're not expecting there will be much sleep over the next couple weeks but hopefully there will be a lot of healthy, natural births.

I can't believe that you aren't going to tell us WHAT you were eating, and WHAT was so funny!???

Killing me girl!

So glad it was good day - we wouldn't know laughter was so good without the pain.

HUGS from Guam

There are days that I read your blog, and I just wonder why God has not called us to Haiti. They are usually days with pictures of faces that I just wanna get all crazy lovey with, like long awkward, too tight hugs with. Today is one of those days. I love that God sometimes gives us glimpses of the beauty of his will in our brothers and sisters.
