Miss Shoshanna was born Feb 7, 2016 at 3:32 p.m.  Football fans know that means she was born 2 mins after kickoff of Super Bowl 50!

This is likely one of the sweetest births I’ve attended in a very long time.  First of all, I’ve been so fond of this family for a very long time.  I was with them when their 4 y.o. son was born and prayed for them as they experienced pregnancy losses.  My heart sang when I heard they were pregnant again and that this baby was coming to stay!

Shoshanna’s mama labored beautifully for several hours, distracting herself with card games with her son and ev12698683_902555419822155_7683754019815945192_oen sharing the birth pool with him for a while.  Big Brother was very excited to meet his new baby. It was Big Brother’s job to tell everyone what the baby was….boy or girl!  He was very prepared, standing by my side watching intently while his mama did some hard work.  When Shoshanna was completely born, Big Brother took a long look and proudly proclaimed, “It’s a girl!”  Then he was very happy to read her a story about tractors.
