My recent trip back to Iowa was a blessing in that I was able to introduce Clara to her great grandma, Nana. Nana hasn't been doing so well lately as she struggles with Alzheimers Disease. I have been really anxious to head back to Iowa and see her because I know that it wont be long before she will not remember who I am. Nana met Aiyana when she was five months old and she talks about her a lot so I wanted Nana to meet Clara while she is still capable of remembering things. I decided it was best to make my way east while I was still on maternity leave. I am so grateful that Nana got to meet Clara and that I will, some day, be able to tell Clara that she met her great grandma. During our stay, Nana always wanted to hold Clara and soothe her when she was crying. Nana's nurturing instincts kicked into high gear over the weekend and having Clara there almost brought out the youth in my grandma.
