We definitely experienced the highs and lows of the child birth roller coaster yesterday. And I have to say there is nothing worse than seeing your child in pain and not being able to do anything. Then there was the stress of a possible c-section after hours and hours of labor. Thankfully, we were able to avoid that, but after 27 hours of labor poor Karrah was exhausted. Pushing that baby out was a real test of her endurance.
Luckily she had her mom and two of her sisters there for support and encouragement. I got a chance to see how special our family is. We're not perfect, but we try really hard not to hurt each others feeling and we are always there for each other when someone needs us. Watching Livia's birth brought us closer. And I can tell you that little girl is loved by each of us. She will never lack for family or aunts willing to help her and telling what she's doing wrong and right. If it takes a village to raise a child she has one in her own family. She probably won't be able to truly appreciate that until she holds her own little baby in her arms and is surrounded by family.
