I love your video!!!! Awesome! I am balling my eyes out! You look so beautiful! We tried and failed at our first attempt to homebirth and this time around, we are holding true to God's promises that we will birth our new baby at home! I let my 1 1/2 yr old DS watch and he was elated! You are a beautiful family! Congrats!!!!

Absolutely beautiful!

A couple questions... What is the song? I love it. How did you do it? Did you do the slideshow in powerpoint, then post to Youtube? Or something else? I'd love to do something similar, but I'm clueless about how to do it. Thanks!

It's called "the voice of truth" by Casting Crowns, I think.

Thank you for sharing. That was beautiful. I too cried. I love the picture where your hand in on your DH's leg and the one where you, your DH and the baby are all smiling in the tub. So much love in your house. Your little girl is a doll!

Yes, it was 'Voice of Truth' by Casting Crowns.

Microsoft has a video making software that came with out computer. You just import pics to it and then upload a song to it and put it together with the software- it's pretty easy. I wouldn't begin to know how to do it without it. Maybe there is a free online service if you don't have the microsoft?

Then you just upload to youtube.

Good luck, it's a lot of fun to work with!

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! I know how inspiring it was to see everyone's slideshows when I was preparing for my homebirth.
