Our oldest girls were babies together (Claire is 8 months older than Anna) and as a new, young mom I don't know how I would have survived without Rebekah's friendship or wisdom. Seriously. I was 22 years old when Anna was born and I didn't know anyone else having babies. I remember being pregnant and going over to her house and seeing her with her new baby Claire and feeling so encouraged. She even happened to be at my house when I went into labor with Anna, and hung out until Kevin got home to take me to the hospital. I miss her terribly but got to visit her and her sweet girls while we were in California.
Now our daughters Anna and Claire have a special bond. It's amazing.
Anyway, today is Rebekah's birthday and I had to do a shout-out on my blog. Happy Birthday RJ!!!
