My First Baby, Leonie Molly Pickett

I eagerly studied every person who came through those double doors, as they opened at regular intervals to let a few people through. I was huge!

Early Arrival of My Second Child

Warren and I were shocked when I went into labor six weeks early. Leonie was 18 months old, and we had very little in the way of a support system, just two recent friends who had their own little children.  And, to complicate matters we were not in our own home.
