It seems there was no greater challenge than to watch the woman you love and the mother of your child to go through this great torment of life that is giving birth. It seemed that nothing prepares you for that moment especially when as a man you soothe your wife and hide your emotions to such a great intensity and then suddenly they have to disappear into theatre while you wait for them to prepare you to meet your first child. Those 25 minutes I had to wait to see her again was sheer agony. And there is nothing greater than the bliss and happiness of those hours of hard work she put into this, to see those beautiful eyes staring back at you for the first time.
We love you, Joshua Donald Elphinstone-Hoadley.
