Welcome to the World!

He has made his way out of hiding and into his mother's arms. Welcome to the world, Austin Scott!

My son had a good cry after his little one arrived. It's been a long wait in so many ways, and a year of seeing life's greatest wishes granted. I am blessed to see his hopes and prayers answered.

He's a little guy, this new grandson, 7 pounds 5 ounces, and somewhere between 17 and 18 inches long. I have to rely on others for pictures this time as I won't be getting close enough to take pictures for another several weeks. No matter the distance, there is always a sense of wonder at a new grandbaby, and I always find a reason to feel teary.
