Fern, however - she had other plans.
Like, "let's be born after 2 hours of labor" kind of plans. Oh, I was crushed to not have been there. But when I walked in, the space was still sacred. My dear friend was glowing, her baby happily nursing, her older daughters yawning excitedly like kids on Christmas Eve, her husband looking on in joyful reverence. In the morning I took some more photos of Fern's first bath and I love these images of so many caring hands surrounding this child. She will have no lack of help and support in her life and we'll all be sure she never lacks for love. Blessings to you sweet Fern - even if I do think you came a little too fast.
