Just before Dr. Lettieri walked out of the room, I mustered my courage,
but tried to act nonchalant.
"Do you think I can have more children?"
I asked, staring at the wall.
He stopped in the doorway.
"Yeah, I don't see why not," he answered easily.
"Let's have another look at the skin on your stomach."
He examined my skin to evaluate flexibility and then reviewed my
chart--no internal damage.
"It's possible," he said, "but wait until your next procedure is done.
We'll have to keep a close eye on your stomach to make sure it's
stretching enough for a baby to grow. "
I was beaming when Dr. Lettieri left the room, and as soon as the door
closed behind him, I squealed,
"We can have a baby!"
Christian grabbed me by the waist and lifted me
gently so my eyes were level with his.
"Darling, a baby!" he said, and we kissed through our smiles

I can't believe I am already thinking about our annual Back to School feast,
but I am. One of the first things I do to prepare for the event
is order my glass stars from Piggy and Dirt.
I have a star made for each Little Nie and one with our newest
family theme etched into the center.
