I am thrilled to announce that my precious nephew, William Vestal Scott, has arrived. I was so incredibly anxious that i was going to miss his birth. Not only did he arrive before i left for my trip but he also arrived on the 3 month anniversary of my fathers death. I woke up on February 19th really sad. I have been really sad lately and missing my dad more than ever. It was a rainy day and i was feeling sorry for myself. I just feel like the loss of my dad isn't fair....i know its a silly way to feel. But i was having a bit of a pity party. I got a call early that morning that my sister thought she might be in labor. I waited until i heard she was admitted to the hospital and then i took off for Richmond. It was probably the most emotional car ride of my life. I was happy and sad all at the same time. I cried for 90% of the ride- just wanting my dad to have been able to be a part of this. I know he would have been so excited. I know he had a hand in this and i know he got the see the birth of his first grandchild from heaven. I would have loved to have been able to give the new grandpa a hug that day. Seeing my nephew be born was probably one of the most special things i have ever been a part of. I am so thankful to my sister and brother in law for being so generous to let me participate- it is a day i will never forget. The way that i felt in the moment he was born was unbelievable- i cant even imagine what they were feeling meeting their son for the first time. It was and is a miracle. What a special name for a special boy- he has brought so much joy in such a sad time in our lives- so thankful for him.
