An Amazing Experience

I had the most amazing day!

One of my very best friends, Danica, asked me to be at her daughters birth. Her husband is serving our country overseas and was not able to be here for it. Her mother flew in over the weekend and was there also.

I was so honored just to be asked. I hadn't ever seen a C Section on TV in detail, let alone in real life so to be completely honest, I was nervous. But way more excited than nervous!

We were to be there at 6am this morning and after being delayed for a little while due to an emergency, Danica was on her way. I could share every single detail but I will leave it that it was a truely amazing event. It has been a while since I've been a part of a childbirth, and I wish I could do it every day. Everything went completely as planned and Mommy and Baby Girl are both doing so well.

Babies are such a wonderful blessing and a beautiful gift from God. I am so blessed to have been a part of Danica's family on this day and blessed to have her in my life. I am so thankful for all of my close friends and family and this day has just made me realize that even more.

Happy Birthday Baby Avigail!
