A welcome and a farewell

Emmeline arrived on 5/21 at 10:53 AM. She was healthy, with Apgar scores of 9 and 9. We went home 24 hours later to begin our life with the Kraken as a four person family. After several years of heartache so deep I was afraid it would break something in me permanently, I think I can finally start to take full breaths again.

As I help my daughter learn to say hello to the world, I think it's also time to say goodbye, finally, to this blog. It has been floundering for several years now as I struggled to find things to talk about that didn't threaten to crack me wide open, so hopefully it will be a relatively painless demise. If there is anyone out there still reading, I wish you all well.
