Stella Rose-Anne McMurphy was going to be a grandmother soon, and she could hardly stand it. There were a few worries about the situation though, due to the fact that her boy Brian had already broken up with Brittany, the mother of the baby.
Stella had just finished crocheting the baby girl's blanket. Stella had chosen the prettiest shade of pink yarn for the project. These days, the color pink seemed to symbolize breast cancer survivors, but Stella still considered it a color for baby girls.
Stella was so hoping that Brittany would include her in her granddaughter's life. Brittany was nice enough, but they hadn't known her well, or for very long.
The phone rang. It was Brian. "Ma! The baby is coming early!" Stella grabbed the pink blanket and her car keys, and headed out the door. Grandma Stella was on her way to meet Baby Girl Pink. (150)
