After I lost Alex Meg was a wonderful comfort to me and we became very close. We shared a lot of emails and phone calls back and forth. When we drove to Virginia in December 2006 we stopped in Pennsylvania so that I could finally meet her in person. Just 2 weeks later she told me over the phone that she had just learned that she was pregnant again after 5 years of trying. I was honored to be the first one to know that baby Matthew was on his way. Little did I know that I would soon become pregnant with Zack.
Last year I was able to spend the weekend in New York with Meg at a Central New York scrapbooking retreat. I am already counting down the days until the spring when we can be roommates again.
Anyway, once again we met up with Meg for lunch on our way down to Virginia. I was so happy to finally get a chance to meet Matthew and her daughter Riley. I fell like I already knew them from all of her stories. Lauren and her daughter Riley hit it off right away.
