Your post made me cry and sometimes laugh, too. I am so deleriously happy for both of you. Although my gut told me that Nikole would come through this well, it was a terrifying experience. I cannot even imagine the rush of relief and gratefulness you must have felt. I am thrilled for both of you and sending big fluffy love thoughts in your direction.

Love, Julia

Oh John, Nikole, Thea! The happy tears are just pouring down my cheeks! I especially loved the part about you talking to your dad, John.
All three of you are gorgeous. Thea is even more beautiful than her perfectly beautiful name. Hold fast to it all. Love, Anne
