Everyday that I look at Mia, I am reminded of how impressive and awe inspiring that pregnancy and childbirth are. I still marvel that I was able to keep Mia alive when she was a baby. Not that I am a horrible person, I was just totally unaware of the kinds of feelings and responsibilities that you just "do." It all becomes second nature and it is totally worth every sleepless night, every yucky diaper, every little bit of baby barf.

With that in mind, a mom I know, just gave birth to twins. You might not think this is a big deal but she had them at home, surrounded by her birth crew and family. By birth crew, I mean doula etc. She put together an amazing and powerful slide show, chronicling her labor and the subsequent birth of these 2 amazing little people. It is a very powerful testament to the love that a mother has for her children. You can see the pain of her labor and the fruit of her delivery. It is a wonderful thing to see. Pass the Kleenex.

Thanks! Do I know you, Christine? I apologize if I don't remember you. I have lost a few more brain cells to pregnancy.
