Brief Description of Birth: In the middle of a rainy night I was called to drive to Atlanta to document an adoption birth. It was the birthmother who wanted photos that she could gift to the adoptive mother. The room was dark, quiet and the energy and gratitude was so present that it felt like we were moving and talking slower than usual. 

When the baby came earth side, the mothers united in greeting her, and thanking and praising each other. Counting the fingers of their daughter together. The photos are not the best quality, much because of the poor light, but I think they tell a story about a child that is so incredibly loved that a one mother went trough hell and back to find her daughter, and for her other mother to give her up for a better life.
