Bringing Home Baby
Our firstborn daughter hails from Royal Oak Michigan. She was born at William Beaumont Hospital in March, 1985. Her arrival was an easy delivery and we should have gone home the following day ... but a blizzard had dumped snow, closed roads, and even knocked in part of the Silverdome stadium ... so we were kept a day longer. Our precious charge had oooodles of black hair, and dark eyes to match. Daddy was smitten with his daughter. So smitten that on the way home he pulled into the parking lot at Toys R Us and said he'd be right back. Meanwhile, I was freezing in the car wondering what on earth he was doing. Out he comes with package in hand and inside the car he presented his little girl with her very first dolly. Such a cute doll, dressed in a wee Irish outfit, with locks of dark brown hair and dark eyes ... just like our darling. He's watched his little girl grow up before his eyes and turn in to a beautiful young woman ... soon to belong to another ... but always daddy's little girl in his heart.
