A Most Undignified Honor

 

I speak often of motherhood being full of undignified honors and NOWHERE has that been more true than in Sarah Lamar's entrance into the world. It's no secret that I struggled with disappointment because her birth was not what I expected, but along with many other lasts I've gotten to fully immerse myself in this year, doing the hard and holy work of bringing our girl earthside was one of the great accomplishments of my life and I will be forever grateful I got the chance to experience the beauty of birth again. It was my privilege to serve her this way and it has been my privilege to serve her- and her brother and sister- every day since.
