Birth Change Agent

I just got back from a fabulous conference in Edmonds about Changing Birth Practices. It was sponsored by R.E.A.C.H Regional Association of Childbirth Educators.
We had amazing food, fabulous speakers, inspirational topics and challenging ideas.
While I was at the conference Sean was home with 4 of the children, He took them to the Youth Fair and my mom had the 2 little girls. Unfortunately, Ruby spent the morning puking. Other than that it went well. I also got pulled over not 1/4mile from home! Thankfully I did not get a ticket, my lights on the license plate were out~soooo important.
Back to the conference, I never cease to be amazed at how God takes care of the little things. When I chose my seat at the conference I found a place that I could see well, and get in and out easily if I needed. There were 2 ladies already at the table and I joined them. Pretty soon, a group of 6 other women came and joined our table (there were over 200 people there). I discovered that they were from my same area! In fact one of them was the Childbirth Educator for our class when we were pregnant with Taylor! It was fun to make some connections. The other amazing thing was that one of the speakers talked about the genetic condition that I have that is extremely rare. I was relieved to be able to get on the right path to some answers by someone who had a clue what I was talking about!
