The Birth of Ivy

This birth was very special to me.

Stephanie is a dear friend of mine and I have been praying for the arrival of her sweet baby since literally the day I met her. We were introduced by our pastor's wife because "This is Mae, she knows about all that birth stuff. This is Stephanie, she just found out she was pregnant" and the friendship of the Burke's began :]

This little miss was not supposed to make her appearance until the New Year, BUT she had plans all her own ;]

Watching Stephanie labor took me right back to my first birth. Just my husband and I and our team, working, setting our expetations to their max, and taking everything as it came. Stephanie labored for less than ten hours and pushed for about 20 minutes. She was inspirational to watch.














Welcome to the world, precious girl. I look forward to watch what the Lord has in store for you <3
