Sarah is in transition. She is getting in the birthing tub. Contractions are intense and often. The water is soothing and so is Kevin.

She is working really hard right now.

Sarah says that at difficult moments in labor the chorus from the Dixie Chicks' song Lullaby is going through her head:


How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough? Is forever enough?
How long do you want to be loved?
Is forever enough?
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

The Virginia cheerleaders are going full strength. You're awesome sweet Sarah. Prayers, Joy and chants of "Come on little one, you are so welcomed!" Aunt Sherry and all

Iris said...

Sending love and prayers to all of you right now! I am so excited!

Love you...

Shifting Gears said...

Ok Sarah...This is like the time we were watching LOST and the power went off-Remember the squeals of delight when the power came back only to be followed by the groans when the power went off again....This is a major cliff hanger...I am in total suspense and can't seem to concentrate on anything but the wait...You could so be a Hollywood writer!

I know, I know...You are ready for the happy ending too!

Yes, beautiful attitude and loved baby....I've checked this blog dozens of times today with anticipation. Abundant love to everyone....
