It's a Boy


My granddaughter "Cora" is 7 months pregnant. Not really, but she is getting a baby from Burundi, Africa in about two months. She gets to skip all that sick icky feeling, the tiredness and the big fat belly. Not only that but her baby will be out of the "sleep all day and cry all night stage". We hope! Well, if not, Jim will love to walk the floor with him. We are all so happy and excited about this. Adoption is a new experience for all of us. I don’t think they have settled on a name yet. My advice is not to name him something and then call him by his middle name. Right now we seem to refer to him as BB (Baby Burundi) I am quite sure that will not be his legal name. The excitement of this is no different than if she were giving birth to him. At least it is for me, and I’m sure the rest of the family feels the same way.
