    My Granddaughter

    I was blessed to be able to watch my granddaughter being born.  It wasn't gross at all, like I thought it might be.  I forgot all about the gross stuff and just enjoyed watching the miracle unfold before my eyes.  I had not seen this before and am very thankful to...

    I have lots of siblings, and I have seen several of them be born. My mother has had home births most of the time with her older children, including me (I was born in a wagon). When I was 8 years of age I started taking care of my siblings. I kind of saw the births of my siblings...

    Two actually, both my kids.

    I have never been more scared or excited in my life. It's so surreal standing there knowing that their entire existence is your responsibility.

    Wednesday’s Child

    I wasn’t there at the birth of my first daughter, but I wasn’t at the conception either so my oversight can’t be held against my New Man credentials. My youngest girl was more my own doing.  The day of it, 14th November 2001, was full of edgy smiles, hope and a mild...

    During college days, you have to deliver a baby before you can graduate.  It's part of the curriculum.  Their first cry, it's a wonderful music.  It's like another angel is born to make a family happy.  Even though you're unsure of what their future may be, it...
