Positive test – twice
9 weeks today!
A Note From the D-a-d
When you look back, there is nothing to fear. It’s already happened. We not only survived, but we thrived. Our Home Birth preparation and birth-day couldn’t have been better.
Katie felt strongly about telling this story, and building a Home Birth community around that story.
The one thing about looking back and retelling a story is that it’s your story to tell, and your message to control. Now a new story is going to be told.
Katie is ready and poised to share. I’ll pop in here from time to time too.
But I’d be holding back if I didn’t honestly tell you that I’m not 100% comfortable with “putting our news out there” to the entire world.
I sometimes I concern over privacy. The shields will be lowered as Katie experiences and reports a story of her pregnancy — in real time.
I sometimes rather avoid bringing any attention to us altogether. After all, we didn’t even tell members of our family when we gave home birth to Ella. So THIS is radically different.
And what about Ella? She’s now a part of the story too. This blog is as much her legacy as it is Katie’s. Two people that mean EVERYTHING to me.
But what am I to do about this concern? What am I to do about this unease? This is Katie’s blog. Katie’s passion. And this community belongs to her and you and everyone who participates. This community belongs to all of you who have a birth story to tell. And that cannot be denied.
So I’m supportive. And I trust. Trust is a form of LOVE.
I trust in Katie, and I trust in this community. Thank you, in advance, for your support and warmth.
