Despite having slept only a couple of hours I jumped out of bed with joy and danced around the room for 5 minutes. I also shed some tears - not of sadness but of sheer gratitude.
My first grandson had arrived - 3 days before my own birthday!
|Welcome into our world, Zack Pearson-Pereira - you're absolutely wonderful|
Some 27 years ago, Shaun brought new meaning into my life simply by being born. I remember vividly the joy and relief I felt then - joy at his arrival and the overwhelming love I felt for the little bundle, and relief at the sense of fulfilment and immortality his appearance provided. I realised then the importance of my genetic code having been handed down. A legacy had started.
Subsequently, the arrival of my two other children would reaffirm my own genetic immortality.
Little Zack is another precious gift Mother Nature.has bestowed upon me and the rest of our family.
I can't wait to hold him in my arms and kiss his puffy little cheeks.
