Rose Marie is born!

It was the morning of Joel's birthday when my mom and I got the text that Kathleen's water had broken at midnight (on the day she turned 37 weeks) and that they were headed to the hospital. It was a Sunday, and she was on my mind all day! That evening, at my parents' house, I crashed onto the couch for a nap ("I just need like five minutes, guys") and after probably 25 minutes my mom gently woke me: "Maegan, Kathleen had the baby!" We didn't know if it was a boy or girl and they didn't text us until about 10:30 that night. Turns out Kathleen had had quite an eventful labor, and had delivered Rose breech- something the staff had not discovered until  the last minute. I was so proud of her and so very, very thankful that the Lord preserved Rose despite the insufficiency (and in my opinion, the negligence) of the staff.

Kathleen and Nick are going to be such wonderful parents!
