Thank you so much for sharing your story!  She's absolutely precious and, I'm sure, well worth plan C.  hug.gif

Oh, my goodness. What an experience! Please, please check out the MDC "healing after birth trauma" forum if you ever feel you need to - even if it's months and months away. It took me a very long for the fog of caring for a newborn to dissipate enough for me to start processing/angsting over my birth experience (which sounds like a walk in the park compared to yours!) - so please, don't feel it reflects badly on your love for your daughter if you need to grieve or do some counselling or whatever.


She is gorgeous. :) My two-year-old came by as I was looking at the photos (and sobbing a bit - I'm pregnant!) and went "Awwww, a nice baby! She's got a nappy on!" in tones of great delight.

Arizona backwards is still Arizona! It's a palomino!
