Maya Hope: newborn

Maya: mother; great one

Her name literally means "one of great hope" and how true. Her birthday is March Fo(u)rth and she will no doubt march forth towards her destiny! I love names that have deep rooted meanings. Kirsten was attempting her first birth after cesarean. And it was a wonderful success story. Maya was caught by her dear friend and colleague, Rachel which was not planned but I think God knew all along that's how the story would be written. Once she was in the hospital, Kirsten's doctor had to leave for other obligations and after much discussion, Rachel moved from being a labor support person to the doctor. Does it get any easier? Here is Baby Maya only 5 days into her life.
