We're so grateful and so humble to accept this gift, and will do everything we can to do our part in his life.
I cannot write of him just yet, of height and weight and eyes and hair color---it's still too tender and fragile a spot in our hearts, so filled with the magic of this special blessing we've been given.
And Rebecca---I don't know how you hit upon it, unless I've written of it before, but Ganner is Chris' Grand-Dad name, bestowed by our Gracie when she lived with us. It started as GrandDear, and of course was re-done by her sweet baby voice.
We'll have her and the rest of the Georgia clan here as soon as school's out, for a couple of weeks, and then we'll go South to meet our New (as he's been referred to in every prayer and Blessing-at-meals since we've known of his coming). We'd always say "Amen" and then hold out our hands, in successively larger little cup-nests, as he grew, and now, we hold out our arms to hold him.
