I am almost positive that 2012, among many other things, was significant because of the rebirth of the "Baby Boom." I easily can count 20+ people I know who were pregnant before me, with me or after me, of which 5 of them were in my family (5 cousins, 5 NEW baby girls). In addition to some really cool slumber and dress up parties with 1st and 2nd cousins - I had the joy of walking this journey with a few of my friends too, Junko who just happens to be one of them. When I found out Junko was pregnant, I think I screamed, jumped and smiled harder then I did when I found out about my Wisdom. Motherhood was a desire of Junko's heart that she had been waiting so patiently for. If you know Junko at all, you know that she is a giver. That she loves God with all of her heart, that she loves people and that she is the true definition of a servant. If you know Junko, you know that she is nurturing and kind, lovely from the inside out, the definition of a commited wife and would be the most brilliant mother! I was excited to find out that my walk to motherwood would be down a path with a friend - and its been a joy sharing this journey with her. Its very obvious that this blog post is late. Junko had her son exactly 8 weeks to the day after Wisdom was born (August 31st). Enzo Zion made his mark on the world Oct 31, 2012 & we had the honor of taking his newborn pictures! I look forward to sharing those soon (late but never too late to share such joy!).
Congrats Junko and Ivan on beautiful Enzo!
