The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

It's Happened!

I can't believe it................I'm a Granny!

The little guy made his debut Tuesday night at 9:53. He weighed in at 8lb, 1oz and he's 21" long. We finally learned his name. Anna and Tim decided to keep the name to themselves until he was born; Riley Kenneth B_ _ _ _ _ . His first name is one that they both loved and his second name is after his Great Papaw, my dad.

Mommy, Daddy and Baby are all doing well. I have learned a very important thing. It was much easier to go through labor myself than it was to watch my daughter go through labor. She did so, so great, but it was hard to watch, knowing exactly what she was feeling. That part of it is all behind her and she has a beautiful baby boy to show for all that hard work.

Of all the pictures, this is my very favorite one. It needs no explanation.

Little Riley, clearing out his lungs...................really well!

Proud Papa!

One happy family!
