"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides." -Aubrey Hepburn
I have never met a new mama that wasn't absolutely stunning.
Birth is beautiful. And miraculous. And amazing. And every mama, no matter how they are feeling on the inside, is simply a work of art. Women were MADE with all the inner strength necessary to birth a brand new life!
And yes, sometimes birth is messy. There are times that it is wrought with pain, disappointment, and deep sadness. It is all part of the human experience, and hard to understand. We've walked that road ourselves. Women who have had to endure loss of any kind, hold an even greater strength inside, a secret in their hearts that many never even know about.
And sometimes, a prayer is answered and life is redeemed. A rainbow baby. The one that comes after a loss, that connects you once again. There are just not enough words to describe it really. Sometimes you just need a photograph.
