GIRL!

I can’t believe it. I had really wanted a girl but since boys seem to predominate on my husband’s side of the family (all his paternal cousins are also boys) I was just sure it’d be a boy (which would have been wonderful too, of course).

I had a startling reality check as we all (me, my husband, son, mother, mother-in-law and mother-in-law’s friend) poured out of the ultrasound clinic, gushing about how thrilled we were to be having a little girl and chattering about names. I looked up to see that the clinic shared an entrance with a cancer center, and a frail woman who had a light scarf covering her bald head was limping to her car. It was such a startling reminder of how incredibly, amazingly lucky we are.

It’s impossible to articulate how grateful I feel to have one healthy son and a daughter on the way.
