Rebekah Marie Pearson made her grand entrance into the world on my
26th birthday, Monday, August 31, 1998. She weighed in at 7 lbs., 5 oz., and was 20 inches
long at birth. She was born with a head full of blond hair and eyes so dark it's very hard
to distinguish their color, though they seem to be a dark grayish blue. When I saw her, I
nearly cried because of my amazement at such a beautiful baby, and the knowledge that she
was mine. I was overwhelmed with emotions I never thought I had and have been filled with
indescribable love for what certainly must be the most beautiful baby in the world.
