My, what a momentous day: April 19, 2005. After three years of "processing", our adoption of Kwamai was finalized. We wound down our adoption celebration to the news of a new Pope. And a few hours later, I went into labor. It kicked into gear by about 8:30pm, and Felicity made her appearance five hours later.
To quote Larry the Cucumber, "I remember it like it was yesterday." I woke up the next morning with the realization that for the first time, legally at least, I was a Mom -- to two miracles :)
