My Granddaughter, Holly, was born at just 24 weeks and 3 days. My daughter's waters broke 3 days earlier, at exactly 24 weeks. She called me at 9pm and at 9.40pm I had arrived, with my wife, at the hospital where she was being looked after.
Arriving at her bedside and being with her throughout the next 72 hours was such a memorable and incredible journey. It culminated, on the Friday, at 6.42pm with the birth of my beautiful Granddaughter, which I was privileged to be present for.
How many men can say they have been present for the birth of their daughter and then for the birth of their daughter's daughter?!
Those 3 days were the most incredible journey of my life.
Little Holly is now 20 months old and is as perfect as can be. And since the night my daughter rang me to say "Daddy . . . . the baby is coming" until right now has been the most remarkable journey of my life.
