This morning we wait for the news of when we will be grandparents for the first time!!! My oldest step-son and his wife are going to have a baby today and we are so excited! My little ones are going to be be aunt and uncle at a very young age and they are way beyond thrilled. Well, my daughter anyway, my little man is a little insulted that he is going to be "old" by already becoming an uncle...LOL! Nonetheless, it is a very exciting time in our family. We have had so many deaths in our family due to cancer, that this waiting is a good one. It is a welcome blessing we are all anxiously waiting for.
I remember when I met my step-son at around age 12. He was this cute awkward kid, who never wanted to go to work with his dad in the summer-time, but had no choice. That's where I met him. It's amazing how much we have all been through since then. His mom died, my mom died, and his two aunts died. It has been a rough ride for all of us but we are that much stronger for it. He grew up to be a smart kind, generous young man and was blessed with finding a wonderful wife. They are going to make great parents.
So for now....we wait for the good news!
