My best friend, since Kindergarten, had her baby today. Elena Sophia - a perfect little 8 pound bundle. All the hopes and fears and joys and tears surrounding her arrival are all set aside while we all, some of us many miles away, exhale in amazement at the miracle of new life. She will be so loved by so very many people, though none as much as her grateful and beautiful parents.
Welcome to the world, sweet Elena. You have already brought your parents so much joy! I can't wait to meet you.
Love, Auntie Ellen
