Hello From Heather Hiestand/Anh Leod

Thanks to everyone who has emailed, prayed or worried about my son Andy in the past five weeks. It has been the roller coaster you've always heard about with premature births. If you can avoid emergency c-sections at 25 weeks, I highly recommend it!

The picture of Andy above is a couple of weeks old. That's as organized as I can get right now! I do have one picture that makes it evident he looks just like my husband...except I think he has my stubborn chin. Since all his nurses describe him as "feisty" I'm reasonably certain I'm right about that chin.

For those of you who were wondering about my recent releases, Ex Factor came out a couple of months ago - amazing how fast time has passed. Buy Ex Factor. Also, Amazon just loaded Cards Never Lie's print version, or you can get it at the Jasmine Jade site, or at Barnes and Noble.

Thank you for your support. I'm at the hospital with my son seven days a week, but hopefully he'll come home this summer and eventually I can bring him into a meeting to meet y'all. Until then, happy writing!

Such a tiny little darling! I am eagerly looking forward to Friday when I can finally get a chance to see him!

So excited to finally see him! I'll continue to think strong baby steps toward little Andy and you, Heather.

Heather, sooooo nice to hear from you! And thanks for posting a photo of Andy--and little he is. Wow!

As eager as he was to come into this world, his feistiness will serve him well. Prayers, joy and positive energy continue to all of you!

OMG, he is so adorable. Can't wait to see him! And congrats on the Ex Factor...sounds like a great book. I've got it on my list. Take care of that tiny bundle, even if he is stubborn. :)

He's a little dear. Remember to take good care of yourself while all this is going on, so that you're up to taking care of him when he finally gets to come home.
