A Birth Story

I stumbled upon a birth story that may quite possibly be the MOST beautiful thing I have ever read. I feel like I was a witness to this birth the way she so accurately and intimately describes it. Maybe it's because her story resonates so deeply with my own story.

Get ready to be completely moved by this....Nella Cordelia

I came across it too....I still have chills from reading it and of course was so emotional. I felt like I was ready my own story. I so vividly remembered how I felt that day after reading her detail of her day.

...wow. so beautiful.

I also read that the other day. So beautiful! Her writing is gorgeous... I wish I could express myself the way she does. Lovely birth story!

Thank you so much for sharing this. I am moved to tears.

I will never know what it feels like to give birth then find out, but I do know what it feels like to hope, pray and wait for 4 months. I also know the feeling is the same - you immediately pray for their health and fall in love the moment your eyes are laid upon them!

Thank you again for sharing! This warmed my heart.

This just made me burst into tears

"Love me. Love me. I'm not what you expected, but oh, please love me."

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful story.
