A birthday thanks
Today is Harrison's birthday. Four years ago, he was born in a pool of water (chronicled here) in his bedroom at our home in Boston, a VBAC attended by an amazing midwife, Deborah. As I do every year on this day, I say thank you to her for guiding me through one of the most amazing experiences of my life. This is a poem I wrote about her.
