For weeks I'd been on call, 24/7. About 10 days past her due date, I got a call from a friend of a friend that I'd never met. It was time. She was about to have her baby. And I was going to document the whole experience.
As I went to leave the hospital at precisely 3:00 am, thankful for such a great experience (including a laboring woman who always said please and thank you- and even offered to talk to me on the phone on my way home so I didn't fall asleep), I was met by a woman just outside the parking garage.
Congratulations, A & W, on the birth of your little Island Fairy!
