Happy Birthday Lily!

We have decided to have Lily's first birthday celebration on the same day as her Baptism which is next Sunday. Lots of family are arriving fronm NY and NJ. Sat is Lance's first communion so it is basically a Rosa celebration weekend!! Today is her actual birthday and I couldn't help but think of her birth mom for most of it. What a day it must have been for her, knowing her pregnancy was over, the birth process was in front of her and she would be saying to her baby both hello and good bye in the same day. Given our history, with the death of our first baby, I can, to a small degree relate to what this is like.
I would imagine that on this day especially, she thinks about where here baby has been placed and how she is doing. After a chaotic dinner with all the kids at a Korean restaurant, we headed home for some green tea we brought home from Seoul, rice cakes and Korean wine. Here's to a most courageous woman somewhere in Yeosu or elsewhere in South Korea. Looking forward to Lily's big bash this weekend.
