This was my third caesarean delivery. It's strange to walk into a hospital and experience such deja vu as I relive the same sights and sounds from my first two deliveries.

I don't know that my first choice would be to have major surgery in conjunction with the birth of a baby, but I am confident that this is God's plan for our family. And I am so so so thankful. Because at the end of the day, I was gifted with a beautiful and healthy baby. I never ever ever want to take that miraculous blessing for granted. My sweet Greta is worth every poke, incision and staple - a million times over.


  1. THANK YOU for letting me come hold her yesterday!! She's soooo beautiful and tiny and awesome! Love you!

  2. The miracle of birth is so amazing in every way. Even after two births of my own kids, I am still fascinated at God's work and in awe.
    Beautiful, simply beautiful.

  3. She is beautiful! Congrats Hooper family. You all make beautiful babies. :)

  4. Sometimes I wonder if that's what it looked like when Parker came out of me...sadly, Ill never know! But I love you!
