I was sitting at a cafe called the Bulldog. I was in Amsterdam. I was on my first trip to Europe by myself when I read my email...."I am pregnant!!! Brian and I are having a baby. We wanted to tell you before you left, but we hadn't told all the grandparents yet....congraulations, Addi...you are going to be an aunt!!!"
I cannot believe it has been 8 years since I got that email. I cannot believe how much you can love a child that is not your own. I cannot believe that Janae is 2 shoe sizes smaller than me and I really cannot believe that she is just about as tall as me!
What I CAN believe is how smart, FUNNY, caring, loving, artisitc and beautiful she is!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANAE!! I love you bunches!
