Life changing events

My Grandpa died yesterday. It had been approaching for awhile, but it is always a little bit of a shock anyway. The funeral is Tuesday, and the whole family is coming in on Monday. I have some deeper thoughts about all of this, but it will have to wait until I have more time to write.

My youngest brother and his wife announced their pregnancy last night. Another brother and wife announced their pregnancy last week. Babies due in May and July. It is easier now to be excited about other people's pregnancies since we are planning to adopt again soon. We may have three new babies in the family in 2009.

I am so sorry about your grandfather. Even if it is expected, it still ends up being a shock.

Congratulations on all the new babies!

I'm sorry about your grandfather.

Other pregnancies - when you are waiting/wishing for your own - are tricky. I'm glad it's easier for you now.
