Congratulations to Christine and Frank, on the birth of their first child, a little girl born sunny-side up! Unfortunately, I was not able to be there for Christine’s wonderful birthing time, as my father was having colon cancer surgery at the same time. Rather than being a nervous wreck with them, I sent one of my amazing backup colleagues, who was an amazing stand-in for me for their birth! It was lovely to get together for the postpartum visit, and see how well they bonded together in that short time.

I can only hope to get to work with them again and be able to attend their next birth–they are such a wonderful couple and I was sad to miss out on their special day!
