First grandchild: There's no way to describe this
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 12:00 PM

It’s been over 30 years since I heard my parents make that statement at the birth of our children, Julie, Sandi and Jason.

I knew that they were telling the truth, but it still didn’t really sink into – until 1:35 p.m. last Friday afternoon when our first grandchild, Kirston Brynn Langham, was born to Jason and his wife, Cindi.

I had a hint of the emotion that could occur earlier in the day when Joyce and I walked into the birthing room at a Fort Wayne hospital where the “kids” were awaiting the birth of their baby girl.
