It was a year ago exactly that my daughter Leigh went for her 20 week scan to find out whether her baby was a boy or a girl.  We had planned a celebration for that night, friends ready to gather and a blue or a pink cake on standby depending on the outcome.  It turned out very differently, as they were told that their baby girl was showing indications of brain, heart and digestive abnormalities.  The party of course was canceled as the family processed this turn of events.

Today our Euphrates Eve at almost 8 months old has two major surgeries under her belt but is a happy and healthy child.  We ordered a pink cake and celebrated with family members yesterday, the party that was a year overdue.

Her first taste of icing!
