On one page I can’t possibly tell you everything you need to know.  But I can tell you a few things I know with absolute conviction:

Baby upon baby
Baby upon baby

Like every child, every pregnancy and every birth will be different.

Pay attention. Don’t miss what is in front of you by looking to hard for what comes next.

There will be surprises along the way. Some are good, some are not. But all of them will grow you as a human being.

You will have your own “firsthand experience”, and it will teach you things from a whole new perspective.

Keep sharing what you learn with those who are hungry to know. Be gracious with those who profess to already “know” – they might not be where you are yet, and they may be growing in a different direction.
