On July 4, 2017, Josh and I welcomed our second son, Samuel Owen, into the world. This is the story of his birth. In hindsight, it all started about 12:30 a.m. I woke up and had to use the bathroom in an urgent way…

Birth Story of Warren James Justice

4:57 a.m. I woke up for what I thought would be my typical 5 a.m. pee. I’m sure many pregnant women can relate. As I sat down on the toilet, I had a brief thought that this could be my water breaking, as I…

Birth Story of Malcolm Eli Settle

Birth Story of Dreyer Lee Grantham

  The Struggle Oh boy, where do I even begin this story? I guess at the beginning … or maybe even a little before Mr. Dreyer was in the making. Early in 2016, Darson and I had determined we were ready to take on…

Birth Story of Ellis Grey Peyton

It was March 5, 2018—my due date. I’m pretty sure I had been complaining for most of the day that our baby boy hadn’t come out yet. Somehow I got it in my head that he was going to be early. I even ended…
