They had had the most heart-wrenching story of how they'd lost their little baby girl a few months before. But their faith, honesty, gratitude, and strength could leave you wrecked, in the best of ways. Anyway, she was pregnant again. And as it so happened, I was lunching with them one afternoon when they got their gender test results on the phone. They were so excited, they shared it with me and asked if I'd mind taking an announcement picture on their phone for them so they could share it with friends and family. Well, I told them I could do one better.
Between the woods of North Carolina and this precious family, my heart was very full that day.
PS: It's a boy!
