For some reason it was ok, the birth announcement from our friends. We had been trying when they announced their pregnancy, and haven’t seen so much as a faint second line in between. Some ideas of underlying issues, but so far everything looks “ok” (with the minor detail that nothing’s happening). And, after a set of bad health-wise news from others, I was really happy about their good news. I just hope that we get so lucky someday, too.
