You didn't hurt me at all. :) you have a special gift and I would love to hear more. Anything else you might have. I have no answers to anything.

Amy, I'm sorry if I surprised you in anyway shape or form. I didn't mean to hurt you with message. Your  husband even asked me tell you but, slowly and nicely so I wouldn't scare you. But, if u have anymore questions please ask me but, keep in mind I may not have all the answers you want either. Enjoy your daughter. Sincerely, Amber
