My friend’s husband was gone with work (Yay Military Life) during the birth of their son, so I offered to photograph her birth for them.
I received a call saying it was time, and she would be heading to the hospital. We live on the same street, and the hospital is nearby, so I told her I would be five minutes behind her.
And I was.
As I drove across the bridge there was traffic.
I was so frustrated, there is never traffic.
But as I pulled closer I saw there was a minivan pulled over on the side of the bridge.
Of course it was surrounded by military police and they wouldn’t let me pull over.
Can you imagine!?
This strong, amazing, beautiful woman DELIVERED HER OWN BABY on the side of the road.
I followed them to the hospital and took a few photos of Baby to send to Dad.
So welcome to the world Finn. You have quite the story already.
