Becoming a parent is said to be one of the most amazing experiences life has to offer. I feel thatís an understatement. I plan heavily for nearly everything I do in life because I canít stand not being prepared for something and this is no exception.
I first want to thank everyone that follows my column and secondly we appreciate all the support, advice, gifts, and donations that everyone has been showering us with. She was on bedrest for almost two months and I had to try and care for her and every other facet of life at the same time. Needless to say many things were beginning to slip, when in stepped our support team. We made it this far without any serious problems and although close, we havenít broken the bank yet. Much of this is due to the love and care given to us by those that we barely know. I ask please make sure to include a name and address with every gift or donation. We would really like to personally thank everyone. If you see me out and about and helped me in any way and didnít tell me it was from you, please stop me and say what was given, so I can personally tell you how much I appreciate your help. When they said over a month and a half ago that we may be forced to deliver any day; I went into panic mode.
