What Made 2010 An Amazing Year - Highlight #3

One of the most profound experiences I've EVER had happened this year when I witnessed the birth of my godson, Zach. I had so many crazy ideas about what it was going to be like but NOTHING prepared me for just how amazing it was. I expected screaming and loads of people hustling about, making it extremely clinical but it was the exact opposite - just me, my friend, her daughter and the nurse. Beautiful Zach came into the world in gentle whispers and a room filled with love and it was incredibly humbling.Of course, once the doctor finally showed up it was a mad house but those few minutes were peaceful and I can't think of a better way to born. I'll forever be grateful for the experience.

He is beautiful! Congrats! I have two of my own children, 3 nephews, 1 niece, and a Godson of my own and I have never had the experience of witnessing the birth of a child! (working way too hard when you have your own to really appreciate the miracle of it) - you are fortunate! Happy New Year!
