Sunday evening, after talking to Julie's dad, I emailed her mother expressing a desire to speak with her as well. We finally caught up with each other yesterday.
The conversation went really well, important things were discussed, insight was provided (I'm not telling what or by whom ;-)), and a blessing was given.
I am very happy at how this has gone, and glad that talking to her parents about this is behind me -- I was sooo nervous!
Now, if I can just wait another 22 hours or so!
