New Grandchild for Christmas
Becoming a Grandparent for the first time is one of the most exciting experiences, so says Colm Holmes from “We are Church”. Here he talks with Miriam Gormally about how their new arrival has brought such joy into the lives of many. He explores the mystery of birth that emerged in their family from what was an unexpected and fraught journey.
He also talks about how men’s role in minding children has changed and how surprised he was to hear that his son was invited into the operating theatre when his partner needed a C-section. And also how generous his son’s employer was with paternity leave. Miriam began by congratulating him on the good news and asking if it was going to make a big difference to their family this Christmas.
