So, we kissed our little angel and left her with the nurses, so we could go and GET READY. On our way home, I called my best buddy and told her all about Amanda. She had a new daughter as well, and would understand my elation. Jerry called his brothers and a few friends. Everyone kept saying the same thing.....you should write a book, this is amazing. I realize that to everyone else, this is crazy, but to us it is the "norm". This is all we know. This is how babies come in to our life. We get the call, jump in the car, pick a name, sign the dotted line, immediately fall in love and then head home to prepare.
When I arrived home....my Mom grabbed me and hugged me so tight. It was the best hug I ever had. I really wanted a daughter, but didn't think that I would ever have one. My relationship with my mother is so beautiful and it was a dream to maybe, share that same kind of bond with a daughter. Now I will get that chance.
