For Emma

Kelle Hampton has a wonderful blog.  I discovered it last year at this time, just after the birth of her daughter, Nella.  Her post struck a chord within our family, because 5 years ago our family faced the very same ..... I don't know the word, it isn't shock, really, it was just unexpected.

It is our Emma, my niece
and she is beautiful
and funny
and loud
and wild 
and very sweet.

And we love her very much.

She, like Nella, is a rock star.
They all are.

Please go to Kelle's blog to see the whole video.  We are leaving in the morning on vacation and I don't have time to figure out how to make this video fit the screen.  It is so worth your time.

We have a little rock star in our family too Sue. Our niece Kate who is now 11, and by far, the sweetest member of our close-knit family. I remember the day she was born so vividly. It was just like you described, not shock, just unexpected. Did you ever read the poem about Holland? If not, let me know and I'll try to find a copy of it for you.
