    15 hours after my friend's birth, I visited the hospital room to meet her newest addition. After taking some time to breast feed, her husband lifted their daughter up to hold. At this moment, I noticed the tiniest hand pop out of her cocoon to find her mother's body. In this, I couldn't help but think about how innate it is for us, as humans, to closely attach ourselves to a homestead - and when it's time to let go, we sometimes find ourselves reaching for what we find in comfort.

    I love that little hand sticking out from its cocoon! That little hand is a wonderful reminder of how delicate life is and how special a parent's bond is with their child. The light and moment are perfect. Well done, Candice!
