Karla Ward: Surprise baby a lifelong joy for my dad, Carson's proud grandfather

What would happen now? Would they take the scholarship away? And if they didn't, how would I live alone in a city three hours from home and take care of a baby while going to school? Mom cried tears of bitter disappointment, but I was terrified of what would happen when dad came in from the field that afternoon. I remember looking down at his brown leather boots as he leaned against the kitchen counter when the moment came. He leaned into the refrigerator and took out a bowl of canned peaches. I sat in a straight-backed chair and came out with the news. He smacked his lips on a bite of the fruit and barely looked up.
