I captured this heartwarming moment in 2005, shortly after my youngest granddaughter Ashlyn was born. Here Grandpa Fred introduced granddaughter Sasha to her new little sister. Thankfully, though both times we lived half way around the world, Fred and I got home in time for the birth of each of our beloved granddaughters.

    I was too busy recovering to get to appreciate this moment as you did. My goodness, it's hard to believe Ashlyn had fit inside me an hour or so before the photo was taken. She was a big newborn and is now such a little munchkin. The photo says a lot about their relationship. They adore each other...when they aren't bickering.
