Fifteen years ago my husband and I welcomed our first child. After 27.5 hours of labor, my daughter was born via c-section.
My husband was there with his camera and this was one of the remarkable pictures he took minutes after her birth.
She is now a wonderful young woman. Strong in her opinions, a fierce feminist and human rights supporter, and sharply intelligent, Missy has a wicked sense of humor, and an enviable poker face.
Happy Birthday, my darling girl. We couldn’t be prouder of you!
