Dream Come Blue

We felt it all around us and longed to grab hold, but left it instead.  Hope belonged there, slightly out of reach, in the land of “maybe” and “we’ll see” and not in our hands or our hearts just yet.
Until today.
Today we cannot deny the glorious hope swelling inside. 
Today -finally- expectation, like oxygen, fills every breath.
Today we learned that our baby does not have Batten Disease. 
He is due in November.  And we could not be more relieved, or more elated.
