“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” ~Rajneesh

A week ago today my best friend became a mother. And I got to witness every minute of it. There is absolutely nothing like watching a new soul come into this world. It is the most precious moment, so raw and beautiful. I have to admit, I was a little scared for Jenny, because she was determined to have Linley according to her birth plan, and when a few things didn’t go quite as planned I could hear the anxiety in her voice. But she knew what she wanted, and she was so strong and brave through it all. I am so very proud of her.

16 hours after checking in to the hospital and no pain medicine on board at all, Jenny gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Linley Renee, named after her great-grandfather, Linwood.

This is her birth story.

Jenny & Eric didn’t find out the sex of the baby during the pregnancy, and it was so worth the wait when they got to announce it to their families. I just love their reaction!

Jenny & Eric, I am so excited to watch you on this new journey. You are already the wonderful parents I always knew you would be.

Welcome to the world sweet baby Linley. You are a precious gift, loved my so many already.
