Our daughter turned 1 last Friday. As much as it's been a celebration of this wonderful milestone, it's been an anniversary, too. What a monumental, life-changing event her birth was for me.
I wrote my (/our) birth story when she was still only a few weeks old, the memory still fresh in my mind. I needn't have worried - her birth has become an integral part of me.
Instead of sharing the story as I recorded it then, this is my experience seen through the affirmations I was given for her birth. It's a powerful story.
Blessing for all mothers, all babies and all births.
I love you with my whole heart, for my whole life.
