It’s been a long week, but a great week. Last Monday, the 5th of July, we made a special trip to Dairy Queen. The next thing I know Janet’s looking at Stephanie asking her if she needed to go to the hospital. Stephanie said she wanted ice cream first.
We ordered ice cream and sat down. After watching Stephanie have a few contractions we knew we needed to move. We made our way to the hospital and began the wait. About 7:00 or 8:00 I took Katie home and let her get some rest.
At about midnight Janet texted me that they had decided to do a c-section. So I got Katie up and we headed back to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital about 12:30. Janet came down to meet us and we waited.
Sammie arrived at 12:53 but we didn’t get to see her until the next morning. But we hung around until about 4:3o hoping to see her. Finally I took Katie home, but she was up by about 8:30. She was anxious.
Sammie makes a great addition to the family and Katie loves her immensely. She is always asking to feed her or hold her. That’s Katie holding Sammie with Janet’s help.
After five long years we have been blessed with an adoptive child. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait as long as Abraham.
