  6. Brenda, I am absolutely thrilled to be celebrating the birth of your bouncing baby book here today. No one deserves this moment more than you, my friend. I hope this is the first of a very large family of Anderson books.

    Big hugs!!!

    1. Lorna – thank you for being one of my *birth coaches* through this process! And, coming from a large family, I’m all for adding many more bouncing book bundles to my shelves.

      Without your encouragement & critique & prayers & friendship, I’d probably would have given up long ago!

      I’m blessed with your friendship!
