My Birth Story: A Blessing at Home

I guess I am just meant to carry my babies a little long, because this one, like her older sister, took her time to make her debut. I ended up going into labor and having a baby girl on Tuesday, April 21, 9 days past my due date. I was itchy and impatient for this […]
