Brooke and Danny’s beautiful baby boy was born Thursday June 7th, at 3:41am.  It was a powerful and relatively swift labor, and all are doing great.   Birth is a deeply humbling and reverent experience.

Soon after the reading I realized I couldn’t remember anything about it! I put down a note to call Brooke and ask her, but even though we talk all the time I kept forgetting.
