Beginning of a Lifetime

The journey begins with a black ink footprint on a white sheet of paper.

This first signature declares “I am here.”

Teenaged aunts stare and touch those tiny toes in pure wonder. Hypnotized or mesmerized or both. They compare the tiny hand to theirs. How could it have ever been that small? Ever?

  1. Max and Ginny, thanks and may the spread continue.
    I do think my Wii avatar looks more like me than this little bundle of joy. Stronger genes on the mom’s side.

    I heard some members on Angela’s side of the family saying the baby looks like a “white Angela.” (she’s of hispanic origin) i thought that was cute. Maybe wrong, I don’t know.
