Sean Charles and Maxine Adeline decided they couldn't wait for their July 13th due date, so instead they were born on Sunday, June 18th (which seems sort of fitting since it was Father's Day). They spent less than 48 hours in the NICU and are both doing well. They said to tell you all hello. :) P.S: I cried again in the middle of the bookstore while reading @cordell_matthew 's DREAM, but it was a much happier sort of cry this time. :) P.P.S: All of your posts and photos from #LA17SCBWI and from your summer camping trips and travels have been so inspiring and comforting during middle of the night feedings. Thank you for that.

P.P.P.S: If you've sent me an email or Facebook message in the past several weeks, please forgive the delay. I promise to reply soon(ish). P.P.P.P.S: I've had spit-up in my hair since yesterday morning. :/

A couple of years ago I stood in the middle of the bookstore and cried while I read @cordell_matthew 's WISH. Not a quiet cry, but a runny nosed, trying to stifle my sobs so as not to alarm my fellow bookstore patrons kind of cry. At that point Bill and I had been trying for 3 years to have a baby and had gone through lots of tests and procedures, a major surgery, and a miscarriage (another major surgery, a minor surgery, and several more tests and procedures would follow). I bought a copy of WISH that day with the hope that someday, one way or another, I would have a child of my own to read the book to. 
And now, I'm very happy to say that soon Bill and I will have twins, a boy and a girl, and WISH is the first book I'll read to them (although i know i won't get through it without crying). Most of all I want to say that if you are struggling with fertility problems or the loss of a pregnancy, I'm so sorry and I understand and I'm thinking of you.

And thank you to Matthew Cordell for making this beautiful, hopeful book.
