Hunter Dawn delivered Bradley Corbyn Siever on October 28, 2015. "He came to the world in the usual way", and blessed my life more than words can express.
Hunter's water ruptured some time over the previous weekend and because of complications with a UTI and because she didn't go into labor, she was misdiagnosed. On Wednesday, she went in early to the doctor for her regular weekly check up and he immediately sent her over to labor and delivery, which was conveniently a few steps away. She called me at work and I came over as soon as I could. She was hooked up to be induced by 9:30 am and delivered by 3:15pm. Hunter did such a great job and I'm so proud of her. She was literally born to be a Mom.

I may even go so far as to say that I feel like I have been given a fresh start. The slate is clean. Nothing else matters. It's as if every bad thing has been erased and being a Grandma compensates for so much...for all. I know I am not describing accurately what I'm feeling and I know there will be hard days ahead, which will fill me with doubt and sadness. I know that our lives won't be all rosey as it feels now but I will have JOY because I have GrandMonsters!!! Oh, I'm going to love this season.
