This child is the legacy of an amazing man.
Nearly seven years ago, he was chatting with a childhood friend by phone. In the course of the conversation, his friend mentioned that his daughter was pregnant. Being that she was single and underage, he had advised her to not to have the baby.
Without a pause, this amazing man said, “We will take the baby.” No surprise to the man but his wife readily agreed!
The friend said he would tell his daughter.
A week later, the friend called and said his daughter was agreeable. Arraignments were made and the young mother came to Tennessee to keep the baby. The new Mom and Dad assisted in the delivery and the next day the legal documents were signed to seal the adoption.
What makes this man worthy of a Legacy Portrait is his desire to “step up” despite his age and poor health. Regardless of your position on any hot button issue, we should all agree that a man that doesn’t just talk the talk but walks the walk is worthy of admiration.
