Mom on a mission, a successful VBAC story!

Vaginal birth after c-section or VBAC, is a topic that has been discussed at great length. Mostly by mother’s who couldn’t give natural birth themselves, and would like to try natural birth thereafter. My own births were first vaginal and then c-section. My good friend Janine, has however successfully had a VBAC with an amazing story. It moved me. She has graciously allowed me to share her story to encourage or motivate any mom who might be considering this too.

Omission is a lie. Or is it?

This past weekend, we had a situation with the preteen. As the title eludes I debated with myself and her as to whether omission was a lie.

So afraid of my reaction that, she requested that I not be told about it. It did come out by the grace of God, which I am very glad for. But man, I was hurt.

You see, a baby was found in a storm drain very close to home yesterday. Hearing about it caused so much outrage, people everywhere had so much to say. I wondered, how could this person, a mother – how could she leave her newborn baby?
