Happy and Sad

Yesterday my sisters Tami and Karen both had their babies...

The very happy news is that Tami had baby James Reed! The only baby (of her now 7) that she carried to a full 40 weeks. Bet she was glad to get him out! I can't wait to meet him!

And the very sad news is that Karen's baby Alice Jane didn't make it. She went in for a routine check-up yesterday morning (37 weeks) and the doctor couldn't find a heartbeat or any other vital signs. So she had to check in to the hospital where labor was induced. Yesterday evening Alice was stillborn. The umbilical cord had wrapped around her neck in the womb. I'm so sad for Karen & Jared. Karen - I hope I'm not sharing too much info. But you guys are all I can think about. You're in our prayers. We love you!

I couldn't believe it when I heard about Karen. I can't even imagine. Totally a bittersweet day. I'm sure your mom was feeling so torn while she was with Tami.
