Jonah was the first child born to my siblings or I. On the day of his birth I had planned to just stay home and wait for that important phone call. But I couldn't stay away. I had to be there. So we made a last-minute trip over the mountain pass in a snow storm - and we made it just in time. I was completely smitten from our very first encounter. He was so very sweet -- and still is.
Watching him grow into a man has been such a privilege. He has a heart of gold. He is so kind with his brother and cousins. He loves his mama fiercely. He is brave and adventurous. He is a good man.
It will be a joy to watch Jonah over the next few years. He has wonderful and exciting plans for his life. And I, along with his mom and aunts and uncle, will watch attentively and cheer loudly with each bold move.
Love you Jonah! So proud to be your Tia.
