October 22 - Happy Birthday Brandon Geoffrey

Today is a very important and emotional day for me.  At 3:50 pm on October 22, I delivered a 7 lb. 6 oz baby boy.  I remember how scary it was.  Correction – it has been scary from the time he was conceived until now.

 I look back at some of my blog post and think HOW DID I SURVIVE.  I remember holding him in the recovery room.  The nurse turned on the radio and Barry White was singing “My First, My Last, My Everything … At that moment, he was all of that and more.  I had ONE prayer

 To raise him to be a God Fearing Loving MAN.  Here is how I raised him….

With God First...   
18 months 



Lots of Love and Support from my Family and Sistah Friends 

Man child at 13 yrs. old

Today, My Man-Child is 18 Years Old.    ((SIGH))

Can you See me SMILE and CRY!! 


  1. I definitely see you doing both. Happy birthday Geoffrey and Cilla. We have traveled this journey through your group and blog posts, sharing the smiles, tears, and fears. And now Geoffrey is a handsome young collegiate who has made us all very proud. So go ahead and laugh and cry Cilla. You deserve it because you've both come a long way.

  2. A testament to good parenting. It's ok to laugh and cry...tears of joy.

  3. Happy birthday to man child. You are doing a fabulous job :)
