After almost 24 hours of labor, I felt like I was going to die. With that one last push, she was there, as I heard her cry from the doctor's hands. I looked up as he handed her to me, she was covered in thick goo from head to toe, but I didn't care. Oh my God, this is my daughter, I thought as I held her on my chest and looked down at this tiny little miracle that we had created. My husband was a mess, sobbing like a baby as he stared down at her, unable to even believe his eyes. She opened her eyes as if to look right up at me and say 'hello mama' and I lost it. At that moment, I never felt more love for anything in my life. I was completely dedicated to this tiny little baby and I knew from that moment on, my life would never be the same.
