Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real tear jerker! I bought my first copy when my son had his first son, I sat and read it with the baby's mom, we both had the hardest time getting threw it as we felt so much emotion! Now I have recently ordered a second copy now that my son has recently had a new child, my grand daughter. I wanted each one of my grand children to know how much I anticipated their birth and how their grampa and I celebrated their safe arrival. I want these children that they are so very much loved!
