A Poem for Jeremy:
We never thought it would be like this...You came into our
lives unexpectedly, quite by surprise. And we waited...with
excitement, anticipation, worry and concern...for you safe
arrival into our arms. We never thought it would be like this... A
whirlwind of emotions...laughter and tears... as you
entered into the world and time stood still for us. We gazed
into the watery pool of your tiny, blue eyes and fell in love
instantly. We never thought it would be like this...The
dewy softness of you skin, the sweet whisper of your breath,
the silky down of your tiny head, the curl of you warm, tender
body into our arms...memories to cling to forever. We never
thought it would be like this... A baby boy, our son, a
blessing from God, sent to us on the wing of an angel. You chosen
for us, us chosen for you. Love without bounds...put into
our heart to keep, to stay, to share, to give away..the love
of our child...We never thought it would be like this.
Love, Mommy and Daddy, Feb. 23, 2000.

Jim, Glanda and big brothers Zachary and Andrew are thrilled
to announce the arrival of James Daniel, born
on February 5, 2000, at the Grace General
Hospital, weighing in at 9 lbs. Proud grandparents are Thomas
and Phyllis Wiseman of Springdale, Newfoundland and Elizabeth
Fougere of Havre Boucher, Nova Scotia. Sincere thanks is extended
to Dr. Jeff White. Your constant support throughout pregnancy,
delivery and post-natal was most reassuring. You have earned
a special place in our baby books. Thanks also to the nursing
staff of the second and fourth floors of the Grace. Zackery
and Andrew send extra hugs and kisses to Nanny and Poppy Wiseman
for taking such good care of them during the Big Event and
Aunt Donna and Bill for being on-call. James and Mommy would

You're the best!
