I wanted to post this yesterday, but I'm taking two recertification courses and had some reading to do.  I think I've actually posted about this before.  If I could only express exactly how much this means to me...

April 26.  A birthday.  Not mine--that would actually be today--but a young man named Kyle.  Seven years ago.  His birthday celebration at a Chinese restaurant, and one of the fortunes in the 
fortune cookie happens to say

Three days later, Lily Grace was born.

Happy birthday, Kyle.  I celebrate the fine, young man you've become, but with your birthday, I can't help but celebrate the miracle that was foretold on a small, white piece of paper stuck in a cookie in a Chinese restaurant.
