The first day after he had the ultrasound we were both really shaken up and all I wanted to do was rent a movie, have a bottle of wine and watch a movie and cuddle. The realization that I might not have the rest of my life to do that struck me hard.
We were gathered around a picnic table on a Sunday afternoon after worship. The bright sun warmed us as we ate lunch. The couple that sat across from me began to tell their story. They were young, hardly out of college, and somewhere in the conversation, I realized they were something very special, indeed.
