We have received many e-mails and phone calls from friends and family offering encouraging words, helpful advice, and offers of help.
On top of that, it has been the incredible blessing to read the comments people have left in recent posts. Women I do not know in real life—and most likely will never meet but whose lives I have glimpsed through their blogs—feel like dear friends.
Those who have read this blog for a while will know that I like spiders, so the metaphor of all these prayers and thoughts weaving a web of spiritual support around our little family is appropriate.
It is a very comforting feeling to be “stuck” in this web!
