Kaitlyn Rose

The "come now" call dispatched me at about 3:00 am. The "it's a girl" was celebrated by 5:40 am. This was my daughter's second homebirth, and also the second for which I was blessed to be part of the birthing team. What do I say about a homebirth experience in which prayer accompanies the contractions and replaces drugs, shouts of praise rise to the Lord before the calls are placed to family and friends, and one of the midwives gathers us together to pray for the kids before their departure?

Weighing in at about 7lbs 6 oz. and at 19 3/4 inches long, she out did Andrew's birth stats!
