so, do you have any kids?
nervous glances shared with the husband as we tried to non-verbally communicate with each other...how shall we answer that? how much detail does this near-stranger need to know? are we ready to break open this tender topic?
then, i spoke.
"yes. we have a baby boy who is in heaven."
deep breath. and you know what? with those words came a deep sense of relief and pride.
we have a son.
four months ago tonight our perfect angel entered the world.
happy birthday, sweet one. mama and daddy are so very proud of you.
