On the 10pm news on KWTX-TV in Waco on Friday night, it was announced that Julie Hays had given birth to a baby girl. The news station showed pictures of the new baby and her mother who has yet to return to work. From almost the beginning, Julie and Channel 10 have shown the journey of Julie Hays as she went through the nine months of her pregnancy. At times, I felt like Julie was being exploited by the TV station for ratings - but she did not seem to be bother by this invasion of her privacy, so who am I to complain.
There are so many negative things going on today that when a new baby comes into this world it does tend to put a smile on even the most jaded faces. I want to congratulate Julie Hays and her husband on their new family member and to also say that the next 18-20 years are going to be one heck of a long, but exciting ride. The cycle of life is something that I have always been interested in and when a new baby comes into this world, the hopes and fears of the parents are interesting to watch. My one and only child is approaching her mid 30's now, but I still remember the date of her birth like it was yesterday.
