It's a. . . .


Come late summer,
Keira will no longer be the youngest grand baby.
My sister is expecting her fifth baby,
grandchild #23,
and, at long last,
poor Azia-Rain,
with one older brother and two younger ones,
will finally have a sister.
The gender reveal ideas
always seemed silly to me,
when I'd see pictures of just the couple
standing there with their cake
or balloons
or paint.
But when you have 20 kids
running around
throwing pink paint all over each other
it really doesn't seem like joy is complete
until its shared.
This little girl is going to be very fortunate:
she's coming to a place
where there are already
all kinds of people
who love her
and are excited to know her.
