Now her dreams have found reality. She was admitted into the hospital last Sunday, September 12 at 7:00 am. She was in active labor- but more than that she was present, and calm and ready. I was prepared for her to be scared, and nervous... but I wasn't prepared for the peace. There she lay, completely calm and enjoying every moment. With her 'blankie' cuddled around her she was drinking
Her room began to fill with lovely women... London, Hayley, Emily, Jacey, Chris,and Jesse's mom and sister. For some that would seem overwhelming, but for Rachel it was perfect. Things were as they should be.
As you can imagine the room had a tangible spirit with excitement and laughter but more importantly love and support. Rachel said she had the opportunity to look into each one of those women's eyes and she was strengthened by their steadiness. 15 minutes after this picture was taken we met Paisley...
I can not put into words the spirit in the room as she took her first breath and looked into her mommies eyes for the first time. What a gentle moment!
Others began to trickle in and that little girl was welcomed to the world by a room full of people who instantly loved her. With a toast to Mommy and baby girl the world has been changed forever!
Welcome to the world our baby Paisley!
