I was the only grandchild for all grandparents and the only child for seven years. Well, that was about to change! My mom looked like she was getting bigger and I began to ask a few questions. My mom told me that she was going to have a little baby. (no ultra sounds back then). I thought maybe you could order a boy or a girl and I asked for a little brother.
My mom wanted to stay with her parents at Yawkey, WV when she had the baby. My sister was born at The Henson Clinic at Hamlin, WV on 8/1. I remember going to the clinic with my dad to see the new baby and my mommy. There was this little tiny baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a tiny crib. This was my little sister, Beverly Ann.
This was a big adjustment for “the queen” to adjust to another child in the house. When my mom got home she let me hold Bev and give her a kiss. I did truly love my sister.
As of 2007, we still have a wonderful sister relationship and I like to make sure she is protected. Sisters are sisters forever.
