It is the day before my son’s birthday. I remember this day so clearly even though it was 16 years ago. I can remember this day even more clearly than the day he was born. The excitement of the unknown…waiting for my husband to come home from work. Going to the hospital, my whole family in the waiting room!! The first grandchild! No one would leave ’till he was born. At the time we did not know if it would be a girl or a boy. We had names picked for either. It would be the last few hours of going from just the two of us, to a family of three. I had a very easy pregnancy and a fairly easy labor. It would still be hours (6 1/2 to be exact) before he would come but I knew that our lives were about to change forever – and they have, but only for the better!
