First Look


So here is the culmination of that strange trip. I awoke to a healthy baby seemingly staring in my direction, maybe she smelled me? When I first looked at her, my stomach contracted in the start of a hard cry and it hurt because if the surgery so I actually had to look away from her to get composed. Useless really as I just started crying when my husband brought her over to me to hold. I was still groggy from the anesthesia so my husband had to cradle us both because I was afraid I might drop her.

That is a great photo, didnt realise it was actually you and your daughter, that is amazing. You both look in collusion, as though you are understanding what each other went through, and both look quite vulnerable and young. Beautiful pic.

That is by far the most moving photo I have seen in a long time.
