She's Here! Seven pounds, four ounces of little pink great-granddaughter!

Welcome to the world, Alyssa! Your arrival prompted a poem, written in your honor.

For Alyssa

Sweet child,
far-staring eyes so wise,
what do you know
that we must learn?

Do you know the joy your birth
has coursed into our lives,
filling us with splendid purpose,
giving us brighter dreams,

washing us with fresh hope,
that everything we do
we will strive to do better
because of you.

We are your family, your teachers,
your defenders, your guardians,
all of us, on your side...
forever.
