The Ultimate Gift of Love...

Young, single, and unexpectedly pregnant...Not ready to be a parent. Faced with the choice of terminating a life or giving life, this young woman made the decision to carry this baby for another couple to parent. During the pregnancy, she went to great measures to make sure she was doing what was best to grow a healthy baby...Eating healthy, exercising, and no drugs or alcohol. She even went so far as deciding to have an unmedicated birth! Considering the fact that 76% of women today have an epidural during childbirth, this was AMAZING! I was honored to be the doula for this courageous, young woman who gave birth to a 9lb 2oz baby boy after only 3 1/5 hours of labor. The room couldn't have been any more peaceful as this beautiful little boy was born into the water and placed on his birth mama's chest. He was showered with kisses and lovingly admired before being placed into the arms of the wonderful couple that would be his parents. Little Brody...You're a lucky little guy and loved by so many!

Look at those lips!

This brought tears to my eyes. What a strong and amazing women she is. It is not everyday that your hear/ read such an unselfish story.
It is always great to have another Brody in the world with kissable lips.
