Angel Shae was born at 2:55 p.m. on Tuesday, November 6. She came out purple (like our Joseph) and was quiet and calm, with only a few cries. She pinked up quickly and got off to a good nursing start, too.
Watching and participating in this birth was a beautiful experience. Seeing all that hard work, and the joy and tears that follow, brings back the flood of feelings of new motherhood. And it's new every time, you know?
