This is a life moment indeed. Holding our grandson, little Joseph Bradley Mangano, a little more than an hour after he was born. It was hard to wait but when we finally got back to the room I had to hold him as soon as I could. I started to cry loud as soon as I picked him up. This is me crying with great and unadulterated joy. Love him so much already. Thank you Maria Mangano for marrying me and bearing Dino (Mangano) and thank God for bringing her and Bradley (Bennett) together so this moment could happen!
Dino and Bradley live 500 feet from us. My plan is to close my law office in downtown Durham when Dino goes back to work in the fall (she teaches three miles from us) and work from home three days a week and take care of JB the other two days. This will be fun!
