Thanks for sharing your story - made me smile. I don't have any kids of my own, but I love to hear stories about other people's children. Nicely done.
What a great story that will hopefully be passed on down through the generations. This is a joy to rad and you nicely tied the whole piece in together with the link to the title in the last paragraph. Well done.

I thought it was going to be something bad, but that's good. Things end up working out for the best with God, don't they?

What a cherished memory you have, how prescious are the prayers of children. Throw in a touch of humor, and viola' a baby boy is born. How neat! God bless ya, littlelight
