The moment you were born, I was just overcome with emotion. I sat right down in the rocker after seeing you finally slide right on out.

You're here!!

I was just so happy and thrilled to have you, to see that you were here, alive and healthy. I sat in the chair overwhelmed for a few minutes, glad that I hadn't tried to catch you, just rubbing all the tears out of my eyes. Finally, I went over to you on the warming cart where they were cleaning out out from the meconium in the placenta. I got to have a good look at you, so perfect, such an incredible miracle.

I love you, Gabriel!!!
