Elena lost her first tooth today! She was extremely excited. It has been loose for over a week and she has been very anxious about loosing it. She said that reading "Junie B. Jones Toothless Wonder" helped her prepare for what might happen when she lost a tooth.
I'm sure most of you have heard already, but if you have not:
We are pregnant with our FOURTH! We are very excited (as you may expect) because we love children. Joel and I knew from the day we said "I love you" the first time (back in April of 1996) that we wanted at least four children. Once Elena was born with CF, our plans stalled. It took us four years to decide to have another child. We opted to adopt to prevent the risk of CF. So Ethan was our second child. We then adopted Emily.
We easily could be consumed by fear of CF with our fourth child. However, Joel and I have nothing but excitement. We feel that we are prepared no matter what the outcome. We are certainly equipped to handle CF or numerous complications at birth after all Elena went through. However, we certainly are praying for health.
We feel so blessed. Thank you to our friends and family for the prayers!
