Welcome Little One


Oh, how I love little ones and the image above  shows why; are they not too adorable for words! Now the little one this was made for is even more adorable  than the above image and she is the great granddaughter of my husband. They diagnosed a heart problem with the little one in the last quarter of the pregnancy. The mother spent the last five weeks with us as our city has a hospital equipped to handle such a problem. I felt so sorry for her as she had to leave her home and our grandson and all her family members to stay with us who she barely knew. She took it like a trooper and I grew so fond of her during her stay. She will make a marvelous mum! Needless to say we had visitors coming and going for the duration. Then on Nov. 20, little girl Allie was born to the joy of all.  She is now back in her home city with her family and will be under  observation for most of her growing years. This can all be done where they live. Sometime good things  happen out of unusual circumstances and the joy to us, besides the health of the little one is we got to know and love the grandson's family in a way we never would have otherwise..
