So this post is two-fold:
#1 - our passports arrived today, complete with travel visas intact!
#2 - my sister is pregnant.
It may not seem like a big deal, but it is a HUGE deal. She is almost 39 and has fought infertility her whole adult life. She had one husband who was an ass who wouldn't entertain interventions, another who had a vasectomy and said he wanted to have it reversed . . . for 6 years. For 6 years he led her on and she finally left him for a man who wanted more kids.
And now, after trying for 6 months (only 6 months!) she is pregnant. At near-39. After years of fertility issues.
AND I AM OVER THE MOON. This is awesome.
She really, really deserves it.
