March 15th, 1991 almost one year to the date of my marriage on a Friday @ 12:58A.M. Joshua Wayne Bickel arrived weighing 5Lb 14 Oz. Another boy was added to the Bickel Clan. Aunts, Uncles, grandma's and friends had gathered around at the birthing center. It was a joyous time, a miracle of life. When he was placed on my chest his elfin face and yoda ears gripped my heart and squeezed it with all the love a parent can have. Yes, "It was love at first sight".
Joshua I'm sorry I couldn't give you brothers and sisters. Life is that way sometimes for whatever reasons, but you my son have indeed been a blessing. When you become a parent you'll know exactly what I mean.
