She was the one I was most afraid of having.
How was I going to handle a 5th child? I cried and laughed alternately at that little plus sign. I knew I would love her but my fear would rise again. By the time of her birth, I was head-over-heels in love with her.
Now, I could not imagine our household without her. Everyone here is a better person because of her; more generous, more responsible, more joyful, more grateful.
Her life reminds me that I have nothing to fear from this little one
hidden in my womb.
Happy Birthday, Jellybean!

"You mean you're three years old."
"Yes, I'm 3 ears and eyes old!"
