Abigail Lynn entered this world at 8:42 a.m. today, Wednesday, July 9, 2008.  She is beautiful and healthy at 10 lbs, 8 oz, 21.5 in long and has captured our hearts. 

My beautiful sister, Stephanie, amazed me with her strength today.  While I was wiped out by 4pm, she kept moving and directing her little family that now boasts 6. 

It has been a joy to watch them in a new light these past few days.  I watched her proudly as she walked about gorgeously pregnant (with a belly swollen to a size that often solicited the question 'are you expecting twins?') and never complained.  Her and her oldest daughter have taken on paper routes and I joined them (and the two younger kids who are along for the ride/walk) Mon, just to see it in action.  And it's adorable.  I don't think Steph has a clue how cute she and her little family is.  Sure, there are cracks and impatience reigns at times.  But when in life doesn't it?

And as I let something small yet very personal pierce my heart once again just a bit ago, I say to my God, take this heart and continue to mold it, even break it, if that's what is necessary.  Break it for You and for them and for my future.  It's Your's and only in Your light do I want to live.
