I arrived to the Davidsson home in the early morning. It was still dark outside. The house was quiet. And upstairs, in the master bedroom, was a beautiful mother preparing to deliver her child. Surrounded with love and support.

The big sisters stayed nearby. They read their books and watched their mom in awe of her strength. While 4 little brothers slept soundly downstairs. 

We watched a beautiful sunrise as this sweet little babe prepared for journey earth side. 

It does a man good to see his lady being brave while she has their baby…
It inspires him.
— Ina May Gaskin

The moment a mother sees her baby for the first time… pure magic.

The excitement in the room was incredible. The kids ran in one by one to meet their new sibling. There was no jealousy, just pure love. 

Welcome, earth side Baby Cate. We love you.
