Anyone who participated in Book 'Em North Carolina this year or who is registered for next year's event has come in contact with Katie Huneycutt. I first met Katie when she was a librarian in the Columbus County Public Library system. I was thrilled when she was selected as the Youth Services Librarian for Robeson County Public Library. Katie loves children and when she told me she and her husband James were expecting their first child, my first thought was "That is one lucky child!"
Along the way, Baby Huneycutt will discover his or her own unique talents - whether it's to be a love of music, of sports, of the great outdoors, of reading, of history... There are millions of possibilities as he or she finds her way through life, exploring and trying a hand at different talents, different venues and different paths.
I wish for Baby Huneycutt and parents Katie and James, every beautiful experience they could possibly have. I wish for them a lifetime of love, of miracles, of beauty... and most of all, a lifetime of precious memories.
Katie and James, from the bottom of my heart: Congratulations!
