Yesterday morning I had the privilege of seeing my nephew be born via c-section. It wasn't as gruesome as I thought it would be. It was actually a very peaceful, almost spiritual experience seeing that little boy enter the world. I got to hold him about an hour later and I still love that fresh from heaven smell that all new babies have. This is the first time that I have been at the birth of a baby that wasn't my own baby. It gives me a whole new respect for motherhood seeing it from the outside looking in. It also makes me grateful for all of the women and men who help Steve and I with our brood in so many different ways. I think that President Bush did a good thing when he made this past Sunday "Sanctity of Human Life Day" (www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/jan/09011601.html). I think every day should be that way and I think most people would agree if they could witness what I was able to yesterday. I would post a picture of the cute little man, but I will leave that for his parents.
