To me, the Spanish language is so beautiful. One of my favorite words to say, besides sacapunta (pencil sharpener) - which is not so much a pretty word, just fun to blurt out..........anyway one of the most beautiful words is amistad. Ahm-e-stahd.

Amistad means friendship and I have certainly seen the fruits of it's beauty lately. This post is brief, but just a quick thank you to all of my amigos who have prayed, cried and laughed with us through this trying time where amistad is most important.

I am sure a ton of funny stories will come out of this emotional time, Adrienne wouldn't have it any other way. I will gather them and be sure to post the hilarity of our lives to you.

Through all of this sorrow Chip has made sure that all plans for our doctors appointment stay on track. We go tomorrow at 9:45 to HOPEFULLY find out if we are having a Hill Hawkins or a Catherine Henderson Hawkins.

Wish us luck.
Love ya,

Hey Rachel. I've been praying for you, Chip, Baby Hawkins, and your family during this very difficult time. I admire your courage and wish you much luck at your doctors visit tomorrow. I'm almost as anxious as you and Chip. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
