I decided to write a book after the birth of my fourth child because honestly, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had worked so hard towards my VBA3C. It seemed weird, even with four kids to not have something to work on and prepare, besides normal life. My heart was overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me and I knew I wanted to share more of not just my story, but I really believe this is all about Him.

New Birth, New Life

It seemed so surreal.

Holding my baby, I put my hand on her head. A wet, gooey, fresh baby. On me. My baby. No one else taking her. No one separating us. Together. For the first time.


“Ohhhhhh.” It’s all I could say in disbelief. This new person I was meeting for the first time.

There’s magic there. There’s beauty. There’s comfort. All those good flowing hormones!

Sometimes we fear the worst, we doubt ourselves, we don’t know if we can truly trust our providers. This isn’t easy. My first birth I went in and expected them to just take care of me. I knew nothing. This time, I almost knew too much.

However, the waiting, wondering and even painful moments of fear and uncertainty, they were gone. A thing of the past, that seemed to be so insignificant.

Everything I worked for was worth it. Nothing beautiful or amazing in life comes easy. It’s through the hard things that beautiful things are birthed.

Like babies.

And their mommas, too.
