Welcome to this world

Dell had her baby yesterday morning at 3:58 am. It was an absolute honor to be there when this beautiful new life entered the world. Dell was so strong. The baby was born in the water, in a candlelit room scented with jasmine, with her parents' favorite music playing in the background. It's a GIRL! Chris and Dell gave me permission to share a few photos.

Such a peaceful setting

Here she is... an angel!
