it's so funny how small this world really is...
back FIVE years ago we were pregnant and were searching for the perfect way to have a baby... then... we discovered a beautiful Birthing Home!
we met the midwife... who I met a bit before... Heidi... we had something in common... we were together with a Swede!
when I found out that she would be our midwife it was like magic!
I was so happy!
then... her and her family decided to move to Sweden... to a village quite close to where we visit every summer... SMALL WORLD!

So every year when we visit we make sure to get in touch and visit this sweet family!

there is something about being friends with a woman who was present on one of most beautiful days of our lives... she was there... sharing our joy... sharing our tears... being strong for me too!
When I see our little Isabelle that this woman was present for her birth... it's fantastic!

  1. Wow, you got some great shots, i totally did not even see you with that camera, I was too busy chatting at full speed to take many pictures!!! So sweet indeed, to have a family that really gets two really important parts of our life- all about birth, and the beauty and tortures of having two wonderful homelands!
