Happy Birthday to my first son.  What an occasion that was for us.  We were in Europe at the time and I had him there.  So he has two birth certificates.  One from the U.S. State Dept and one from the Country where he was born. Even though it was the 29th of May, the delivery room windows were wide open and it was cold outside and in.  The trees didn’t start to get leaves until June! When the three of us headed out of the hospital to what we called "home" it was still cold!  I was in a coat and bundled up.  It must have been right on the cusp of the trees making leaves though, because a week or so afterward, there they were!  Outside of having the other two sons..it was the best moment of my life..all I had been waiting for.
