I didn't cry when I heard the heart beat. But I started to cry, joyful tears, when I opened my e-mail midday today.
Hi, Sarah -
Congratulations! And hallelujah. This is very good news. It will create some extra challenges, but you're taking all the right steps. Both Paul and I are eager to help you find ways to hold all this together. I have every confidence that we can make it all work.
I think we'll do better to talk by phone. Why don't you give me a call at the office tomorrow morning? The number is below. If tomorrow won't work, please suggest another day that might. I look forward to talking more soon.
I hope the first trimester is proving bearable, that the work of saying goodbye is going well, and that you and your husband have a few spare minutes to delight in and anticipate all that is happening.
God is so good. I'll call tomorrow- hopefully after sleeping very late.
