Entry Description

The precise moment when the newborn takes life into her own hands by inflating her lungs with her first breath and exhaling the carbon dioxide with a scream that sounds like music to the labored mum who has reached down to assist in welcoming her first born out of the womb and into the world.  An exhilarating moment that passes too quickly yet is cherished for a lifetime.
