|First moments with Baby 2|
Edit: If you have a moment please go read and spare a prayer for this sweet little boy and his family. Having had a child go to the hospital in an ambulance this year I know exactly the nightmare feeling she is talking about but hers is so much worse. *Edit 2: she had to take down her original post because of what sounds like lawyerly intervention and an investigation or something (darn right too. There should be consequences for that truck driver).
Does anyone else revel in birth stories? I'm so glad that people feel comfortable sharing such personal, intimate stories. They're beautiful and uplifting and absolutely among my most favorite things to read.
For the past few weeks my reader has been alight with birth stories and I thought I'd pass them along:
Superwoman Cecilia gave birth to identical twin boys with no drugs. I keep trying to write about the miracles that happened here but my sentence ended up being like 18 lines long so let me just say: there were miracles.
Sydney labored for something like 9 days (mind is boggled). But those pictures of her when she first held her baby? Killed me.
Christy gave birth to twin girls seven months ago and just got around to posting the story (can't blame her. She has got to be BUSY). I can't believe how chunky her sweet babies look. They must have been really crammed in there.
CJane had a home birth, which both terrifies and fascinates me. Later that day, she hosted Thanksgiving dinner at her house. I kind of wish you could have seen my face while I was reading about that.
This one is older but it's one of my all-time favorite birth stories- the birth of Nella Cordelia. She has Downs Syndrome and her parents had no idea until she arrived.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
