Even though my pregnancy was less than standard, my labor (thankfully) was as smooth as silk. I pushed for less than twenty minutes while my family congregated just outside the delivery room door, but when my daughter arrived she didn’t make a sound. Of course I was terrified something had gone horribly wrong. For several minutes there was absolute silence while I cried and looked frantically from face to face, hoping for some sign of an answer from one of the nurses.
To read the entire story about the first time I met my daughter go to ABC’s Million Moms Challenge. It gives me chills just thinking about it now, thirteen years later.
