After playing golf in his hometown of Hawaii, Forever President Barack Obama greeted an anxious crowd and was immediately drawn to the youngest fan present.
Because of Them We Can spoke to baby Paisleigh’s mother, Chelcie Edwards, to get her thoughts on the monumental moment.
“To have the First Black President ever to initiate holding our daughter, let alone kissing her on the forehead, has to be one of the most pivotal moments of any parents life,” Edwards said. “For our little girl to be in the hands of a man that is so influential, yet still so humble, and allowing her to experience something many will never get to experience is a blessing from God within itself. It’s just one of those things that’s just indescribable.”
At just 7-weeks, it’s safe to say that baby Paisleigh is in great hands.
“This memory is one she will listen to for many years to come, as well as have for the rest of her life. As parents, we plan to share this monumental moment with our daughter through pictures, stories, and instilling in her who exactly he is and was before her time. These are memories for her all while being able to live in a place Barack Obama calls home, Hawaii. Furthermore, I pray one day my daughter appreciates and understands the magnitude of what she was able to experience,” Edwards said.
As Obama handed Paisleigh back to her family, he told her father, Joseph Edwards,”you can’t beat having daughters!” We believe Malia and Sasha would agree.
What an amazing memory and keepsake for all!
