look how much the world loves you

World, meet Bram.

Abram Adrien.

Seventy-one hours of labor.

One awe-inspiring delivery.

An unstoppable labor team.

Two healthy (exhausted) mamas.

One healthy (exhausted) boy.

A birthday shared with his sister.

An empowering birth story.

A baby cooing between us.

(I can’t do more than this right now, but this community is too generous to be kept waiting another day. Thank you all for holding us in whatever way.)

  1. I could not be happier for all of you! This post (and that picture) were wonderful to wake up to. Thanks for sharing with all of us. Hold that baby close!!! Isn’t it magic that you can finally touch him?!

  2. Oh my, he is just beautiful. What a lucky little boy to have such a family to be born into. Enjoy these delightful first moments (and the rest to follow that are just as wonderful)

  3. He is perfect – I’m so glad he made it! Congratulations to you, J, A, and C for your incredible strength and endurance in labor and delivery – I can’t wait to hear the whole story, hug you all, and hold this baby! Love from, M

  4. Oh my gosh, more tingles and misty eyes when reading this post!!!!!!!!!! I am so, so, SO happy for you three (ok, misty eyes just sprung a leak). Love and comfort to all of you from Cincinnati; enjoy these days and rest when you can. xoxoxoxo

  5. I just recently found your blog and have to greet you both with the warmest congratulations! Such an amazing, loving journey. Bram is beautiful and very lucky. All the best to your wonderful, expanded family. =)
