I thought I might take some time to document our daughter's birth. When we orginially got the call, we thought Liliana would come during the week of May 5th. I had our end of the year musical scheduled for May 13th. I began making preparations for others to be there for me in case I got the call. I really expected not to be able to see Cinderella happen after months of work, which I was a little sad about I must say. Well, the week went by and Liliana had not made an appearance. After talking to D. on Monday, she said that the dr. said she would be going into full labor very soon. I was on pins and needles on Tuesday (the day of the Cinderella performances). After the two morning performances I was sure I would get the call very soon and not make it to the evening performance. However, the day went on and still no call. We performed the show at 6:30, finished up and headed to Frontera to eat. There were 15 of us together when we went to eat. After the mariachi band played for us, someone made the comment that it was so quiet after they left. I immeadiately thought that I might have missed a call. Sure enough--D. had called during the "fiesta" music! Cinderella was done and our fairy tale was about to begin... Wow... there is not a day that goes by that God doesn't remind us that our lives are on his time, not our own-and his time is always perfect!
I'll write more tomorrow about the hospital experience. It was awesome!
