Welcome raindear! I'm sorry I missed this before, but I just read your story through the link from NC's Facebook page. Wonderful story and interview! I am happy you are finally able to embrace and love your curls! Woohoo!

It looks to me like you're a 3a, I agree with Gretchen. It will be easier to tell once it's been pampered a bit and allowed to show its full curl potential.

I'll be looking forward to finding your posts and following your hair journey into curls!
