Baby Lips and Miracles

Do Not Copy

One sibling photo a week throughout the year. 7/52

Met this sweet little guy this weekend. I want to let his mama tell the story when she’s ready, but I will say, being present for his birth was a true gift for me. I have never been more amazed by the the miracle of life, the goodness of God, and the beauty of a mother giving her absolute all to bring her child into the world. Moms are heroes, y’all. Pain, prayer, struggle, and tears…and that’s just the beginning. I’ve had a number of babies myself, but its been a while since I’ve seen someone else give birth and I’m in awe. Wow-times-one-hundred.
