A milestone along a journey

Well, it's finally happened ... on 14 April, my son Chad and his wife Candice made me a grandfather. I've posted the first pictures I've received here. Chad and Candice are in Heidelberg, Germany, so I'm afraid it will be some months before we get to see our new granddaughter - pictures will have to do for the time being. Seeing Chad and Candice posing with their new baby reminds me of that time in January of 1976 when Chad was born and we were proud new parents - as seen in this image while Vickie was still in the hospital, before she and Chad came home. A long journey for Chad and Candice has just begun - likely not without bumps in the road, but the blessings outweigh the challenges.
