Itís my sisterís birthday.She was supposed to be born on my birthday, but Mom's obstetrician had a feeling something was wrong and took her out early (my brother was a Caesarean, and in those days, that meant that the next baby was one, too).Good thing, because the cord was wrapped around her neck, so she might not have made it.

Instead of being born on my birthday, she came home from the hospital on my birthday, and I couldn't wait to peek in the bundle of blankets.She was the best birthday present I ever had. †
