Throwback Thursday: Moment of Fatherhood

Evan is delighted with the new life ...
... until "responsibility" dawns on him.
These two photos, taken moments apart in the delivery room of Lewis-Gale Hospital in Salem show an entire range of emotions that a young father goes through when his daughter shows up for her life.

This is my son, Evan, looking over Madeline minutes after she was born nine years ago in March. He was delighted, then terrified. I remember that well when he and his sister came into the world.

It's the very moment when "grow up" seems less mama's scold than god's command.
