At this moment last year, I was having strong contractions. I was in so much pain, and your father was recording me thinking I was a drama queen. They got worse and worse and closer and closer. Until at 2am, I couldn’t handle the pain. I asked your father to take me to the hospital because they were less then 10 minutes apart, and to the point when I got a contraction I couldn’t speak. Your father grabbed the diaper bag, and walked me to the car. Before I even entered the labor room I signed the epidural papers, because I thought I was going to die (okay I’m a drama queen) no but really. 12 hours later, my doctor gave me the green light to start pushing at only 7 cm dialated, because your heart beat dropped to the 30-40s. Then my heart stopped, the umbilical corded was wrapped around your neck TWICE. I had the most amazing doctors whom kept me calm, and assured me everything was going to be okay.I prayed… Then I heard the most beautiful cry in the world, yours. You were placed into my arms at 6 lbs. hairy and pale. You were beautiful, and mines. I stared at your father and I felt a rush of happiness, to know you arrived healthy into this world. As perfect as a baby could be. I never experienced such a rush go through my body to know you were in my arms. Seeing the look on your fathers face when he first saw you, a man falling in love with his daughter.
We are blessed to have you Victoria, your our blessing.
