CHAPTER 1: A NEW SUNRISE

It was October 15, 2001. It was a very chilly and dry day in the small country town of Eslinger. Almost all of the leaves were off of the trees now. It was as if God had spilled a can full of yellow and orange and red paint all over the ground. There wasn't a voice of a child to be heard for they were in school. It was so peaceful.

But inside the Fragner Hospital it was a living hell. Missy Dawson was in labor. Missy was a very tiny young woman, whom wasn't even married. She was about to have a baby that seemed almost as big as her. Her boyfriend Charle(the baby's father) was in the hallway nautious and pacing back and forth. He couldn't believe that his girlfriend was about to have their child. Missy was only 19, and Charle was only 21.

They were on the verge of eloping together and getting married. For their story was much like Romeo and Juliet's. Family against family. (I am sure that most of you have heard the story or seen the movie, so I am not going to review that whole mess.) Everything was setup and perfect except for one thing… the child was almost here.

A couple of hours passed and Missy was in intense pain. All she could do was moan and groan. What made matters worse, was that the baby was going to be there in a matter of minutes. Finally, the time came for the little one to be brought into the world, and all of the visitors(which were only Missy's two best friends) were evicted from the delivery room.

"Ok, now Missy I am going to need you to give me a big push on the count of three," said the doctor calmly.

"Ok, I think I can do that,"Missy grumbled impatiently.

"I know you can honny, it will bbbe all over soon." Said Charle with a studder.

"Ok, here we go…one…two…three push!…Ok gimme another big push, one…two…three push!…We are almost there I can feel its head, one more biggon' Missy you can do it, one…two…three push! Here it is!" Shouted the doctor excitedly.

The doctor gently pulled out the baby and proudly stated that it was a healthy baby girl. Missy and Charle hugged and kissed eachother and then their baby girl. She was precious, and all theirs.

The time came to name the baby and Charle and Missy had the perfect name already picked out.

"She will be named…Shelby," Missy and Charle said in unison.

A few days passed quicker than Shelby came into the world. Today it was time to take Shelby home. As Charle gathered up the last few things from the delivery room, Missy was thanking the doctors and nurses for all of their help and gifts. Missy, Charle and Shelby headed out to the car and drove away, leaving only memories behind them.
