What a celebratory day today enjoying Erika opening all her baby shower gifts surrounded by those who love her. This has been a long journey for her and we were all blessed to be there today helping her navigate the waters towards motherhood. Much love was in the room today, advice from us moms, lots of gifts for baby and some for mom to be. Wonderful cupcakes made by her two sister in laws and other yummy food as well. I also was introduced to her sister Crystal who seems warm and wonderful like her sister. Many miles seperate Erika and I right now, and I am thankful she returned home to those she loves to mark this new chapter in her life. I am looking forward to being an aunty, and hopefully offering Erika advice and coping stratigies along the way.
