    Heidi, we’ll be thinking of you and Jeremy and the kids, especially on Monday, July 16th when you first actually get to see, touch, and be with your daughter!! What a special day. The emotions will be riding high on that day for sure. What an experience for the four of you. We love you. Anxious to meet Mollie for ourselves and welcome her to the Herndon clan. . .who just happen to be some of God’s choice people on the face of the earth!!!!!

    Wow!!!! Your post made me cry! This time will be so precious for all of you. I am praying that Mollie will experience as little anxiety as possible and that she will be able to be comforted by at least one of you easily! God’s timing is perfect!!!
