We wondered how Dinah would react if we brought home a new little kitty for her :) Somehow I envision her having this expression to it all:
On completely separate note, we visited with a woman from our church today who's firstborn daughter died 60 years ago due to a pinched cord. She reached out to us, and we really enjoyed our time with her. It was good to hear her thoughts and know you can survive it all. 8 months out and there some moments on some days when I wonder how we're are supposed to make it. She repeated the common phrase, "Do it in your own time and speed." She mentioned feeling uncertain about other pregnant women, and situations concerning babies early on. She validated everything I was feeling. It was good.
