Wowsers! And this is why we blog - to tell the stories that need to be told! Totally powerful!

Sorry we missed the party and happy belated birthday to the miracle child!

PS - If I ever have a little girl, I totally plan on naming her Liberty! :)

What a beautiful story for a beautiful time (except for the scary part - yikes). My Mom was born on the 4th of July, also. I remember my Grandma saying how her doctor was at a picnic at the lake, too. Oh man. But, she arrived safely and we always enjoy celebrating her bday. She was 65 a couple days ago. Wow.


I love the descriptions here. I didn't want to glance ahead in case the news was not good, and I had tears when she was placed in your arms. Birth is such a miracle.
