Tuesday, December 6 –
Another darling child was born today in the Goodwin home in Tennessee. Little Elsie came without much fanfare or trouble. Everything went well (considering her midwife was delayed with another birth and didn’t get there in time). However, not to fear, the midwife’s daughter, Carol, being a midwife herself, had no problem helping Atlanta deliver her baby at around 3:30 in the afternoon.
